Renewable energy now affordable
As energy consumers struggle with price
increases of at least 5.5 per cent this
year, one South Island firm is offering
households and businesses peace of
mind by allowing them to generate
renewable solar energy at the most
affordable prices ever.
CPS Solar has secured their lowest ever
import terms for their high output solar
photovoltaic (PV) panels. So there s
never been a better time for households
and businesses to consider solar systems
to generate their own energy.
Murray Marquet, Director of CPS Solar,
says: What we re offering consumers is
the ability to take control of their own
energy supply for the next 30-40 years.
All our Solar PV panels carry a 25 year
warranty and it s not unusual for them to
be performing up to 40 years from
Solar power means real reductions in
overheads for families and businesses.
The PV panel and inverter systems are
ideal for mounting on homes, dairy
sheds, school classrooms and ware-

evolution series homes
Healthy, affordable and energy-efficient living is the lifestyle
choice of the future in Central Otago, with the success of locally
designed and built sustainable homes by Rilean Construction.
The evolution series philosophy is simple, to design and
construct healthier, warmer, more energy efficient and
sustainable homes while reducing CO2 emissions, says Mick
The feedback we re already getting from our clients is
We re pleased with all the figures so far and over the last 12
months we ve collected data to help identify energy
consumption, a recently built 180m2 home used just over
$1,000 for the year for heating, hot water and general
electricity requirements, its performing much better than we
had calculated, Mick says.
All designs are future-proofed in anticipation of more
stringent environmental building regulations, and designs have
been thermally modelled.
Independent research shows that living in an evolution series
home could reduce at least $900 off annual electricity bills and
reduce CO2 emissions by 70 per cent, compared to the same
house with electric heating and the minimum insulation
A dedicated website www.evolutionseries.co.nz which contains
a professional fly through helps people understand the
concept and implementation of the homes.
