Whether you want to go grid-tied, hybrid or off-the-grid completely, Hiko Electrical can guide you with expert advice and develop customised solutions to meet your needs.

Increase your independence and reduce your carbon footprint by investing in the immediate benefits of solar power. Not only can you enrich your quality of life, health, financial and eco sustainability, but you can also leave a legacy for generations to come.


A grid-tied system works like an alternator. When energy can be sourced from the sun, the solar panels will generate electricity to fuel your requirements.  Excess capacity is sold back into the local grid.  Conversely, when insufficient electricity is available, power is drawn from the mains grid to make up the shortfall.


A hybrid system is still connected to the grid but reduces your reliance even further by storing excess power in batteries for use when the sun has set.

Off Grid

Disconnect entirely from the grid and install solar panels, inverters and battery storage to become entirely self-sufficient and self-efficient.

We have used Hiko Electrical a few times, Chris is professional, friendly and knows his trade. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services

Sandra and Roger - Dry Dock Cafe in Tauranga

We have worked with Chris over 3 large projects. We have completed 3 renovations, two in a very old villa! Chris’s expertise has meant that we were able to allow him to take charge and recommend not only the best solution, but also the safest and the most cost effective option for our projects. His approachable and fun nature makes him a joy to work with, and our builders and plumbers were all very happy to work with him to complete the project. He goes above and beyond to make sure the project is completed on time and within budget. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

I would say i’m a handy person but after watching Chris install the rangehood i’m glad I called him! Was not an easy job but Chris handled it. Thank you for your hard work!

Chris is just fantastic, I’m so happy with how the shop looks. He worked out of hours as well so I could keep the salon open during normal hours! Really knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend him!
