About McNae Electrical

Family owned, we are one of the larger electrical contracting businesses in Palmerston North with 100% local ownership. Because we're local, well recognised and trusted we do more solar installations in the wider Manawatu than any other company

We're local and easy to find

We live and work locally and you'll likely bump into one of us at the supermarket checkout or picking up our kids after school. Unlike some other national companies that subcontract out their solar work, we're a one-stop shop based in the Manawatu and we do the whole job ourselves. We have expertise, knowledge, and experience. This means we can install any job from the smallest one-panel system on a tiny house to the largest commercial systems.

We live by our promise to guarantee our work and products. And that's not just for solar—that goes for all electrical work carried out by McNae Electrical Solutions.

We have a strong team of technical installers and office support

The company has a team of seven qualified electricians, one electrical engineer, one electronics technician, four apprentices and office support staff.

Our team has a broad range of experience to meet all your solar needs and electrical work.
