Our Story

ChargeSmart is a family owned and operated business specialising in smart solutions for solar and electric vehicle charging. We are on a mission to ease the transition to electric transport powered by renewable energy; with a focus on premium products to do it right the first time. 


Owners Nigel and Melissa Broomhall each bring a wealth of knowledge to the business, as well as being EV drivers too. Nigel has over 18 years of experience in the electricity industry and is a leading expert in electric transportation. Melissa brings over 10 years of experience in the energy and utilities industry along with her enthusiasm for customers and health and safety. 


In 2020, when looking into solar for their own home, Nigel and Melissa learned that Mercury Solar was up for sale. They leapt at this great opportunity to diversify ChargeSmart whilst still remaining true to the businesses values of sustainability. The equally passionate and experienced employees of Mercury Solar were retained, some having been involved in the business since its inception in the early 2000s as What Power Crisis. Their knowledge has been invaluable and they have seamlessly integrated into the ChargeSmart family. 


Adding solar to the business also brought with it the relationship with Tesla Energy, making ChargeSmart one of only two approved resellers in New Zealand. The Tesla products once again align with the carefully selected EV charging range of premium, smart and high quality products. 


ChargeSmart hopes that New Zealand will continue to utilise technology to improve the state of the environment and reduce carbon emissions. We continue to aim to educate Kiwi’s on the benefits of electric transport, solar and the latest news and trends in the industry. We truly believe that we are able to make a positive difference to the environment and climate change through conscious decisions by all to reduce and offset emissions.
