What Power Crisis is owned by Mercury, a leader in New Zealand’s energy sector, and a producer of 100% renewable generation.
What Power Crisis supplies renewable energy services and solutions to New Zealand, Pacific and Micronesian Islands. Our customers range from individuals requiring small scale generation, e.g. a single 290W panel to cover base-loads, to residential systems right through to light industrial and commercial systems. Starting operational life in 2005 focusing on wind energy electricity generation, we leveraged our practical experience to evolve primarily into grid-tied solar PV which is where the worldwide and New Zealand renewable energy markets are focused.
What Power Crisis has performed many successful residential and commercial solar PV installations, including the prestigious recently-installed 50kWp system on the Auckland War Memorial Museum.
What Power Crisis aims to find the right solution for you based on your energy needs. We are trusted energy partners of major companies in New Zealand, and in the Pacific Islands, and you can trust us to find the solution for you!
