How we began
Three friends sat around a kitchen table in suburban Melbourne in 2005. One was working in solar energy, another was working in information technology and the other was in the banking/finance sector. They were all dissatisfied with their current positions and hopeful their combined strengths would lead them to something better.
From these fervent kitchen table discussions, Energy Matters was born. It functioned for its first three months as an online distribution company of solar power systems from a garage.
Where we are now
With over 150 partners in solar retail & installation around Australia, in 15 years we’ve grown into a house-hold name. We are responsible for an installation network for commercial and domestic solar power systems, as well as stand-alone equipment for those living in remote areas of Australia.
Our site has gained note as one of the top ten in the world for purchasing solar and renewable energy online and Energy Matters has been the recipient of number of awards.

Keeping it simple.. and economical
As with any new technology, solar energy systems may have been treated with some suspicion a decade or so ago. Notwithstanding that, the technology is now at an advanced stage where you have the solar panels installed on your roof and they plug into your meter box. And it works for a very long time with next to no maintenance.
We don’t go into long-winded technology explanations with everyone, except for the people who love solar power for its technology. In order to compete with mainstream electricity and other issues, our system has to operate and work just as well as the previous system the customer has been using. And that’s where we are today – we’re just as good.
