Solar panels

Solar hot water for your home or business can save money and reduce your reliance on electricity or gas.

Cost-effective hot water

A quality solar hot water installation, correctly designed and installed, can provide savings of up to 75% off hot water heating costs in the sunny Bay of Plenty. Most of the time, a standard electric water heater is used to heat water during dark periods. We have installed many systems that instead use a gas heater to boost the temperature. A solar and gas combo is great for off-grid clients.

Designed to spec

Eco Plumber & Gasfitter offers a full range of solar-powered hot water systems. We can design and install a solar water heating solution to suit your hot water cylinder or daily hot water usage.

Our installations range from small domestic systems with either gas boost or electrical backup to large-scale commercial systems for campgrounds or cow sheds. Our technicians have completed installations using all major solar brands and componentry.

We're the bay's solar experts

We are able to offer experience and service not many companies can match in Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty. We keep our vans stocked with solar panel spare parts, meaning our solar technicians can get your system operational again quickly, saving you money and stress.

Only the best quality plumbing, gas and solar

With Eco Plumber & Gasfitter, you get the renowned 12-month Master Plumber Guarantee for all work done on your home.

We wish to acknowledge the awesome service provided right before Christmas Eve. Very grateful for your willingness to accept the job and get it done – which meant our son and family could enjoy a well-deserved holiday with running water!!! Please pass on our appreciation to the staff as well. We will be recommending your business.

We have had Dale to our place three times - underfloor heating problems, gas hot water issues and a stove service. Each time he arrived at said time and explained everything as he fixed the issues. Great communication and would highly recommend. Thanks.

I booked Eco Plumber to relace a shower rose. Due to a change with one of their appointments. They came the same day I booked them. Brilliant service. Prompt. Took all the discarded bits with them. Very fair charge. I will use their service again.
