Solar photo-voltaic panels as a renewable energy source

In New Zealand we are lucky to have plenty of sunshine hours. Therefore it makes sense to utilise the abundant supply of solar energy available to create electricity.

Solar power is a cost-effective solution, providing a clean, environmentally friendly, and most importantly, renewable energy resource.

The process of converting solar energy into electricity is called photovoltaics. This is achieved by using solar panels, which are flat and made up of many individual solar cells that convert light from the sun into power.

Solar Electricity ~ a cost-effective alternative power solution

Genkit solar panels can be utilised to supplement existing power in a domestic
situations, or for use in large-scale commercial operations.

Creating Solar Power ~ How it works

A basic off-grid system for residential use consists of a renewable energy
source, which generates DC power, charges a battery bank that stores this power,
and an inverter. The is the intelligent
centre of a renewable energy system, seamlessly converting DC power to clean
and reliable AC electricity for your needs.

Cost-effective Solar Energy

Solar electricity can be an extremely cost-effective power solution. As most
places in NZ have abundant sunshine hours, Genkit's off-grid and supplementary
power solutions almost always include a solar panel framework.

Small & Mini Wind Turbines | Genkit Nelson Ltd

The 100 is well suited to water pumping, battery charging, and telecommunications.It's specifically designed for maximum durability in sustained high wind environmentsor as an entry level turbine for moderate power needs. Exclusive to the Whisper, the side-furling Angle-Governor protects the turbine in high winds by turning the alternator and blades out of the wind, reducing turbine exposure.


Mini-hydro, micro-hydro, small scale Hydro Power | Genkit Nelson Ltd

Small scale hydro or micro-hydro power has been increasingly used as an alternativeenergy source, especially in remote areas where other power sources are notviable. It is the leading source of renewable energy, and essentially produces no carbon dioxide or other harmful emissions, in contrast to burning fossil fuels. With our micro hydro systems, water is captured via a filter / intake structureand passes downhill in a pipeline to the turbine.


Gonooble ~ stand-alone power system | Genkit Nelson Ltd

Our Gonooble stand-alone power system can combine a wind turbine and solar panels that charge the batteries, and an auto-start generator that fires up when required. The beauty of the Gonooble is that it can be packaged to suit your requirements.


Products | Genkit Nelson Ltd

The Gonooble combines wind turbine, solar panels, battery bank and an auto-start generator that fires when required in a single compact unit. Providing sustainable off-grid power, wind turbines effectively supply renewable energy and are often used to supplement on-grid supply. Sophisticated long-life batteries can be used to create and store electricity for use in homes, boats and as backup and remote power.
