about us

Our ‘about us’ is really about you. We are fuelled by a collective of New Zealanders who are affordably generating their own electricity from the sun, helping to look after the planet and doing good for those in need. 

We want to create a lighter, brighter future. And to do that, we know it’s time to let the sun in. 

Like many of the world’s most successful businesses, we started off in rather humble surroundings: the living room of a shared flat in Auckland in 2013. Our founder and CEO Luke Nutting was an electrician who knew solar power would have an important role to play in NZ’s energy future, as it had done in many other countries, so he set out on a journey to help Kiwis harness the sun’s energy.

Our HQ is in central Auckland, and with our new solar hub up and running in Kerikeri, Northland, and branches set be open and operating all over the country by April 2021, we can look after customers on their solar journey wherever they are in NZ.

We deliver world-class solar solutions to the residential, commercial and agricultural markets in the most environmentally responsible way possible. But we don’t just want to install panels and batteries. We have bigger goals. We’re also on a mission to become NZ’s largest rooftop generator and we believe that good energy can help create thriving communities.

We are committed to helping the communities we operate in, partnering with organisations that align with our goals and eliminating negative environmental impacts.

Our team is by far our greatest asset. When you choose Lightforce, you’re choosing to work with a fully in-house team of pretty special humans.
