        • Shane Williams
          Shane Williams Electrician / service manager

          CEC Installer 20075 3Shane completed his electrical apprenticeship with us in 2019. After several months on the road doing service work, we asked Shane to do a hybrid role of service manager (in the office) and backup service Sparkie (on the road). We find having a skilled and practising sparkie on the other end of the phone has brought our customer service to another level.

          • Michael Forrester
            Michael Forrester Electrician, Solar Installer

            CEC Installer 20075 6Michael is one of Queensland’s best blokes. That’s what his wife said when he won Mr. Ipswich in 2009! Seriously, he’s a top bloke and one of the best sparkies you’ll find. He first started working for us in 2011 – he had a break ( most likely modelling?) – but we’re better now ’cause he’s back.

            • David Buchanan
              David Buchanan Electrician, Solar Installer

              CEC Installer 20075 8David started with us back in 2009 as a laborer before we took him on as an apprentice. After completing his 4 year apprenticeship, he stayed on as a tradesman. He now leads one of our 6 teams. He’s a bloke of integrity and has a keen eye for quality. We’re proud to have David on our team.

                Before Brady completed his electrical apprenticeship with us, he was actually pursuing a career in Aircraft Engineering. Brady is passionate about renewable energy, is an extremely hard worker and a truly top bloke so it’s safe to say we’re glad he realised his calling as an Electrician.

As a veteran in the solar industry we have figured early on that Yorick is a keeper. In 2015 he asked to step out of the office so he could work directly with our customers. If there is something Yorick does not know, he will ask and learn. No BS. How could I refuse?

Jaime recently moved back to Brisbane after being in SA for 10 years. We are certainly happy to have Jaime on board with her down-to-earth attitude and technical knowledge.

Since he has so much experience on the technical side of things, we know he’ll be able to tailor the perfect solar system for any situation. He has a degree in graphic design and has picked up solar design with ease too. Don’t confuse him with Mark Cavanagh. Mark is much better looking.
