Vision, Mission, and Goals

Sol Energy focuses on the basics while embracing new technologies and approaches, to develop a built environment that is beautiful, sustainable and good for the soul.

We have solutions for difficult problems and are enthusiastically focused on ensuring our built environment is designed and built to constantly improve our quality of life. Ultimately, we strive to minimise the impact on our finite planet.

Whether you are serious about minimising your footprint, or simply want to decrease your business costs, our approach is simple.

By being smarter we have the ability to simultaneously improve our quality of life or business bottom line, as we lessen the impact on the planet.

Every kWh of electricity saved in Australia counts.

Australians live a very carbon intensive life compared to most other nations. By making a few small changes we can greatly reduce this impact and save you money in the process. It’s a win for the planet and a win for your pocket!
