Energy Assessment

We pride ourselves in assessing every person’s energy requirements – this is important because everyone uses their power or wants to use their power in different ways and there’s no “one size fits all” solution.

There are a wide variety of vehicles too, including horse floats, house buses, powered trailers, and everything from a little Hiace van to a 13.5m truck trailer for carrying race cars!

This could be an upgrade or a new install on a conversion and is essential for people who live in their motorhomes but equally important for the Weekend Warrior.

Our main aim is to provide enough power to keep leisure or house batteries as happy as we can for as long as we can – as this is the most expensive replaceable piece of RV equipment.

We have a standard information gathering task-based on, but not limited to, the following:

  • Current solar setup
  • Make and model of the vehicle
  • The number of people travelling
  • Length of time off-grid
  • The area lived in and travelled to
  • The use of normal household appliances

Our Business Development Manager and Lead Technician work together to calculate the power needed, work a plan to fit it within the specs of the model of the vehicle and ensure that budgets are respected.

We educate our clients so that they know exactly how to use their systems and how the system will perform for them and give expert advice. We specialize in powering commercial vehicles that use power to perform duties such as underground cameras.

This assessment process is also very helpful when you want to install your own solar, as we can put together a kit designed specifically for your needs.

All too often kits sold online don’t carry the ability to assess whether they’re exactly what you need.

The Importance of Accurate Energy Assessments: Navigating the Solar Landscape with Confidence

As a leader in New Zealand’s solar industry, Motorhome Solar has seen firsthand the issues and expense that can arise from ‘cowboy’ quotes. These quotes often overlook the specifics of your RV setup, resulting in improperly installed systems that need costly repairs.

That’s why we offer free energy audits. We aim to arm you with the knowledge you need to confidently navigate the solar landscape. Our audit provides a personalised understanding of your RV’s power needs, helping you avoid potential pitfalls and expensive oversights.

Whether you opt for us to carry out the installation or not, our primary goal is to ensure you’re well informed and prepared. Contact us to book your free energy audit. With the right knowledge, you can ensure your journey into solar is a safe, efficient, and rewarding one.

Please remember that while we’re here to provide general advice and answers, your specific situation may vary, and it’s always best to consult with a professional before making significant changes to your RV’s electrical system.
