Project Overview

Set on three acres of alpine hillside in Queenstown overlooking Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables range, Sherwood offers a unique setting to unwind, and reconnect with self and nature, and is firmly committed to sustainable practices, including energy provision.
To this end, Sherwood commissioned one of the largest private solar installs in New Zealand, currently generating more than they consume with the balance being returned to the grid.
248 high efficiency multi-crystalline solar panels were installed across all roof surfaces that showed sufficient potential to efficiently capture solar rays, and the system incorporates the latest monitoring and evaluation hardware and software.
