Guy, The Solar Power Pro, has been a licensed electrical contractor for over 30 years. See - Electrical Contractors License.
On moving to the Illawarra in 2009 he undertook training to become an accredited solar designer and installer. See - Clean Energy Council Accreditation. On becoming accredited he teamed up with Simon (see below) and since then has been working almost exclusively as a solar grid connect designer and installer. He worked in the industry prior to the introduction of the now defunct solar bonus scheme in NSW which resulted in a boom and people rushing to get into the industry to make a quick buck (nearly all of whom have now gone!). This makes him one of the most experienced solar professionals in the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and Southern Highlands area.
During this period he has kept abreast of the many changes in the industry, attending professional development days and conferences both in NSW and interstate. In late 2011 he undertook further training and became accredited as a standalone solar power system designer and installer – one of the few in the Illawarra.
Simon has worked with Guy from the outset. Prior to becoming involved in solar installations he worked in his own business of roof maintenance so he knows his way around a roof.
Part of his work involved finding and fixing roof leaks. In many cases when getting a solar installation done, you may have an electrician doing the roof installation, or sometimes only an apprentice or labourers, all of whom usually don’t have experience with, or a good understanding, of roofs. As a result you often see very poor practices and methods used that could eventually (or sometimes immediately) compromise the integrity of the roof.
Simon’s experience and his understanding of how roofs work, means he knows how to avoid problems. This gives you confidence that your roof will maintain its weatherproof integrity long after the solar panels are installed.
Both Guy and Simon are tradesmen who take pride in their work. They have installed well over a thousand solar systems in the Illawarra and beyond.
