Who can register for Solar Buddies?
Any residential or small business Trustpower customer can apply to register for Solar Buddies. If you are not already with Trustpower just call us on 0800 78 95 02 or click here to switch.
Your buddies also need to be Trustpower customers. If they are not already with us, just get their consent so we can contact them, indicate on the registration form that they are not currently with Trustpower and we’ll contact them to sign them up.
Other things you need to know
- Most Solar Buddy sellers have up to five buddies. But if you have more, just complete an additional sign up form and make it clear that you are the seller for both sets of buddies. You might want to check how much spare power you are currently exporting each month as this will indicate how many buddies you are likely to be able to supply with up to the 50 unit per month maximum per buddy.
- There are no restrictions on where your buddies are located, so they don’t have to be based in the same region as you.
- Your buddies can be on low or standard user rates.
- In some cases, depending on the Trustpower meter read and billing cycle, your credits may appear on every second monthly invoice. This will not affect your total credits.
