solar export tariff

The best solar price from the only solar-focused retailer

At NextGen Energy, we see the positive benefits of adding large-scale solar (and battery storage) to the grid to move NZ towards its goal of 90% renewable energy by 2025.

We’d like to help you to help us achieve that goal. So we believe in offering a fair price to promote the uptake of decentralised, local solar generation. It’s good for us, good for our solar customers and its good for the country.

Our solar export rates apply to all solar panel systems with a rated capacity of up to 10kWp¹, and are GUARANTEED for as long as you remain a NextGen Customer.

We can’t offer a fairer deal than that. Call us FREE on 0800 890 146 and we’ll arrange the switch for you.

In comparison, the big retailers will pay you a lot less for your solar power:

**Flick Electric pay the prevailing wholesale rate at the time (typically 6-8c).

***Genesis may offer a price, but it’s so well hidden on their website that our researchers were unable to find it.
