Managing Director of Queensland Solar Quotes
I got involved with Australian Solar Quotes in 2017 to compliment my background and passion within the solar energy field. I own and manage the Queensland territory, which covers NT also. I’m somewhat of an energy enthusiast, with a strong foundation in the renewables field.
You’ll see me around the website quite a bit, especially if you’re in Queensland. I was born and raised in Brisbane and this is where I begun my electrical engineering career close to fifteen years ago. Over the years I have been heavily involved in the residential sector however spent quite a few years working on large scale projects in the mining, oil and gas sector.
I love technology, home automation, renewable energy technology and most of all, solar energy. It took a good 50 years before the world realised that our sun is a reliable, practical and economically responsible resource and this coupled with the endless supply sunlight makes solar panels the best option for homes and businesses throughout Australia.
I’ve installed well over a thousand solar power systems on rooftops throughout Queensland. I addition to this, I have developed a variety of commercial solar projects, some of which on power purchase agreements, making solar even more attractive and affordable. I work closely with a variety of industry professionals, from wholesalers, retailers, electricians, finance, manufacturers to name a few. This being said, there’s not a question that I can’t answer, so follow my energy blog and feel free to get in touch.
