Our Story

The Queenstown Solar story is born from the notion that one and one, make three.

With the combination of consumer demand for cheaper electricity and greater energy security, the demand for solar has been steadily increasing. Partners Dean Dunning and Paul Hollingsworth wanted to use their combined experience in the solar industry to be able to offer a local, expert and tailored service to both Wanaka and Queenstown residents.

Being based locally in Arthurs Point means we’re just around the corner, whenever you need us.

We’ve harnessed a team of expert, passionate solar installation staff that genuinely care about quality products, our planet and providing you with the most efficient system possible. Think of us as your solar power perfectionists, armed with unsurpassed attention to detail and a friendly smile to boot.

Individually each company is run by true locals. So we’ve always got boots on the ground that are just around the corner whenever you need us. But together we support each other with knowledge, skills and buying power as we champion a carbon-neutral future for New Zealand.

Have your own architect, engineer, builder or subcontractor? Not to worry. We’ll happily work in with your chosen provider, but the sooner you consider your energy options the better.
