I had SolarWorx install a 10 Panel 3.3Kw system at my Wellington house. They worked with us to get the best panel placement to suit the roof size and orientation, and worked through a rather odd inverter location request. The system was installed over 2 days as it was far too windy to install panels on the first day. Installation was professional and clean, with no mess being left on site. The whole process was incredibly quick and easy with SolarWorx sorting all the paperwork, inspections and certifications. Highly recommended!
