If your looking for a solar power system on the Fraser Coast, Rick is the man to speak to. Rick and Bob are extremely experienced in system design and installation of both grid connect and off grid systems. Rick has recently lead our team of electricians during the installation of a large off-grid system for Australian Agricultural Company (AACo) west of Mt Isa. Rick and Bob also make regular trips over to Fraser to maintain and install smaller off-grid systems.
Rick completed a radio trades electronics apprenticeship in Central NSW before discovering the Sunshine State and the Fraser Coast. He worked in the area for 10 years as an Electronics Service Technician before spending 12 years with several mainframe computer companies as a maintenance engineer. Excited by the emerging solar industry he obtained electrical qualifications in the area, got his Clean Energy Accreditation and joined Infinity Solar over two years ago. He has a true passion for renewable energy opportunities and emerging technologies and is excited to be "living the dream“ in a great company with great prospects in a great part of the world.
Bob started his working career as a motor mechanic before travel called. He then became involved in the construction industry, specifically cranes and rigging work, and spent many years working all over QLD and Australia in the construction industry. There he became involved with the installation of solar PV panels and realised the Renewable Clean Energy Industry was the place to be. Currently apprenticed to Infinity Solar as a Systems Electrician specialising in solar, he loves the Fraser Coast lifestyle and working opportunities.
I recently learnt why price should not be the main motivator when purchasing a solar power system and why Infinity Solar is my choice.
In 2010 I was looking to install a standalone solar power system for a rural property that I had recently purchased. After many months of research and countless phone calls to companies around Australia I came across a great company by the name of Infinity Solar. Adrian Decarli and his team designed me a 5KW battery back-up system and took the time to explain how the system would work, the rebates I would receive and why they believed that the components they recommended were the best to use.
Adrian’s team installed this system at my property in early 2011. The installers were fantastic and even offered to update the power board and install a few power points to get us going. And the system has not missed a beat since!
After this experience I caught the ‘Solar Power Bug’ and decided to look at installing a feed-in system at my principle place of residence as well. Naturally I spoke to Adrian first to see what deal he could give me. He designed a 5KW feed in system for my house and also a smaller system for my Dad’s place. The price was good and the components were from reputable suppliers however I decided to get some quotes from a few other solar companies just to check I was getting a good deal. This is where I went wrong.
One of the other companies I spoke to dazzled me with their slick marketing presentation and offered me a price that was several thousand dollars less than what Infinity Solar could match. So I went with them because they were cheaper. And yes you guessed it - less than 12 months later this other company were out of business and I was left with a faulty inverter with a warranty that was not worth the paper it was written on.
So with my tail between my legs, I called Adrian once more to see if he could dig me out of the mess I had created. And of course he did! There is a good reason why Adrian and his team are still in business and that is a good reason to go with them.
