Cromwell based Infinite Energy celebrates ten years in business this year with innovation the backbone of their success according to CEO Regan Heal.
“Our team’s technical expertise has allowed us to play a leading role in the design and delivery of bespoke and complex systems for a massive range of applications. As a family run business we have grown to a peak of 19 staff with sales continuing to grow dramatically as solar power becomes normalised while energy costs continue to soar.”
“A personalised approach allows our technical team to hand-pick products for quality and performance specific to each job. We have a broad supply chain and no formal ties to any one brand which enables us to match a suitable solution to each unique location. This is not a one size fits all approach.”
With solar technology constantly changing and improving Regan says Infinite Energy is at the forefront of industry upgrades.
“Battery storage has been a game changer for the local market where power outages can be frequent and disruptive. Today around 60 per cent of all systems we design and build include a battery component which is a smart solution.”
“We started out installing panels rated for 205W per panel. Now we have products exceeding 400W in residential specifications and much larger for commercial and utility scale projects. Batteries have been the big mover with lithium ion batteries making home energy storage more available and safer than ever before.”
Regan says there is a clear industry message for all New Zealand consumers.
“As New Zealand strives towards electricity moving to ten per cent renewable resources we want people to understand that solar power really works. It’s great for homes and businesses alike saving thousands in energy costs over the life of the system while also helping us all to reduce our emissions.”
Infinite Energy has worked with multi-million dollar architectural properties throughout New Zealand and each time delivered solutions to meet a unique need including Camp Hill which is an entirely off-grid subdivision at Hawea Flat with 270 solar panels installed to feed the community energy requirements.
“Also Forest Lodge Orchard at Mount Pisa which is the first of its kind – a commercial horticulture operation running with zero fossil fuels. We designed a system that enables total electrification with the capability of transacting energy for additional financial gains winning joint first place for Best Grid Connected Installation at the 2021 SEANZ IndustryAwards.”
