Herston presents an ideal environment for solar investment due to several key factors:

  1. Abundant Sunshine: Herston, like much of Queensland, enjoys plenty of sunshine throughout the year. This consistent sunlight makes it an excellent location for solar energy generation, ensuring optimal performance and energy savings from solar panels.

  1. Sustainability Focus: With an increasing emphasis on sustainability and renewable energy, Herston residents are increasingly interested in reducing their carbon footprint. Investing in solar power aligns with this mindset, allowing homeowners to contribute to a greener future while also enjoying long-term cost savings on their energy bills.

  1. Government Incentives: Queensland offers various incentives and rebates for solar installations, making it more affordable for homeowners in Herston to adopt solar energy. These incentives, coupled with the decreasing cost of solar technology, enhance the financial feasibility of investing in solar panels.

  1. Rising Electricity Costs: Like many parts of Australia, electricity prices in Herston have been steadily rising. By installing solar panels, residents can hedge against future electricity price hikes and reduce their reliance on the grid, leading to significant long-term savings.

  1. Increasing Property Value: Solar panels can enhance the value of residential properties in Herston. Many homebuyers are attracted to homes with existing solar installations due to the potential for lower energy bills and environmental benefits, making properties with solar panels more desirable in the real estate market.

Overall, Herston’s favourable climate, sustainability consciousness, government incentives, rising electricity costs, and potential property value increase make it a prime location for investing in solar energy.

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.
