Welcome to Assist Energy Ltd (AEL) where our staff are passionate about clean, renewable, efficient energy systems  …… and as a consequence, reducing your energy bills!

We are keen to share our experiences on how efficient new technologies can reduce our environmental impact and achieve stunning energy savings for you or your business.

Assist Energy Ltd (AEL) serves the South Island from its head office in Christchurch and an office in Queenstown. Expertise can also be drawn from sister companies Assist Electrical, Assist Automation and Energy Guardian (NZ) Ltd.

If you would like one of our expert staff to visit, assess your energy use and advise on the best solution for your property please call. An energy efficient property soon pays for any expenditure through lower running costs and should ultimately lead to a higher valuation.

Our solutions may embrace changes such as: lighting replacement, photovoltaic solar systems, hot water heat pumps and energy control systems. See us for cheaper ways to heat your hot water, spa or swimming pool. Our Enistic monitoring systems provide data to allow fact based decision making.

Qualified staff

Our sales consultants and installers want to ensure you have the best and nothing less. Your needs will be heard and the best solutions recommended.

AEL will strive to deliver a solution in a timely manner but this may depend on external factors such as consents or approval from your electricity grid supplier. We have experienced energy assessors, solar and electrical installers within our group. We pride ourselves in supplying quality products and professional installs with attention to detail. to visit your home. Please note that access will be required at the time of installation.

After any installation your property will be left neat and tidy and you will be briefed on the use and maintenance of your system. We will also arrange for staff to visit after 12 months to check the health of your system, answer questions and ensure that you are using it optimally.

Home Health

The warmth of the environment we live and work in has a big bearing on both our health and how we use the property around us. World Health Organisation recommendations are that the temperature is maintained above 18C or we will be more likely to suffer from bronchial and asthmatic issues. In New Zealand we have a poor record in achieving this standard and often close off rooms for the colder months. Our heat pumps etc can enable you to enjoy the comfort of your own well heated property.

Quality is guaranteed at the best price.

At Assist Energy Ltd we offer you the best priced, quality solar power systems and water heating solutions with hot water heat pumps.

To have top quality energy efficient heating and lighting systems doesn’t mean you’ll pay the earth. AEL want to help you make wise investment decisions that will meet your needs.

Financing options are available to enable you to manage the costs and suit your home and budget. Please see Finance Options

Happy Customers

We had a Cree heat pump installed at the beginning of winter and its warmth transformed how we now use our house. Both the inside and outside units run very quietly and we are most impressed by its efficiency.
