If you call this vibrant suburb home, consider the incredible benefits of solar power. Here’s why Forest Lake is the perfect place to invest in solar:

  1. Abundant Sunshine: Forest Lake enjoys Queensland’s renowned sunshine, making it an ideal location for solar energy generation. With ample sunlight throughout the year, residents can maximise their solar power production and reduce their reliance on traditional energy sources.

Forest Lake residents can enjoy reduced energy bills and even generate surplus energy to sell back to the grid, providing additional savings and potential revenue streams.
  1. Government Incentives: Queensland offers various incentives and rebates to encourage the adoption of solar power. Forest Lake residents can take advantage of these programs to offset the initial cost of installing solar panels, making it an even more attractive investment.

Too easy.

Don’t worry, it’s no obligation and no hard sell. 


It’s up to you. Our preference is to visit your home to understand your property and discuss your energy needs. But if you prefer, we can just provide a “desktop quote”. Our consultants are always happy to explain as much or as little as you’d like to know about solar.

Measure up

A critical part of a high quality solar installation  is sending an electrician out to “measure up” before install day to ensure everything runs smoothly. With a measure up, we guarantee you’ll get what you expected. No surprises. Just the best solar install possible.

Install Day

What’s the most important aspect of any solar installation? The blokes on your roof. We don’t use subcontractors (meet our experienced, long term team on the “our team” page.) We’ll do a professional install, show you how it works, and clean up with a smile.
