Our Story

Ryder Energy is a New Zealand, family owned and operated company whose parent company Kensair have been providing heating, cooling and insulation solutions for over 30 years.
Kensair started in the early eighties with car air conditioning which at the time was new technology. Residential and commercial air conditioning quickly followed and became the core offering of Kensair over the next 25 years. As family members came into to the business the company saw opportunities to add residential insulation to their offering and this along with the already established heat pump business offered a comprehensive solution to warming up New Zealander’s homes.
As customer service and installation teams became established across New Zealand, Kensair looked to other products they could offer to bring benefit to their clients. Solar was a product customers often asked about and after extensive research it was agreed solar fitted perfectly into the portfolio and Ryder Energy Ltd was formed to bring a solar energy offering to our customers.

Today Ryder Energy is operated by passionate and forward-thinking people who are committed to providing New Zealanders with the undeniable benefits of solar power. Ryder Energy is built around our 5 key values and our unrelenting commitment to our mission.

What our users say

Thanks for your great service in installing and setting up our Ryder Energy solar power system Pat.  It’s early days yet but already we’re delighted with the environmentally friendly electricity it’s generating and the savings on our power bills. A nice investment provided and supported by a helpful company – Maurice Ward, Sumner.

Ryder Energy came and put solar panels on our roof and it only took them half a day to put them on. We think solar panels are really cool because we are now making our own power and mum and dad are happy because it saves them lots of money.

Ryder Energy make the transition to solar so easy. They took care of practically all of the process meaning we were producing our own electricity in no time. Highly recommend these guys.
