National solar solutions company Energy Matters has announced a formal partnership with Port Macquarie’s Wauchope Solar to provide businesses and residents in the region with expert solar installation services.
Enhancing a long standing relationship with Energy Matters, Wauchope Solar will now act as the local agent for all Energy Matters enquiries in the New South Wales Mid North Coast region.
Wauchope Solar have been designing and installing renewable energy projects on the Mid North Coast for over three decades. The company installed solar equipment for Australia’s first solar powered community radio station, 2WAY FM, on Mt. Cairncross in 1985.
“We’re excited to announce our partnership with Stuart Watson and the team at Wauchope Solar in the Port Macquarie hinterland,” said Energy Matters co-founder and general manager of retail sales, Nick Brass.
“The combined strength of Wauchope’s local knowledge and Energy Matters buying power and expertise will ensure households and business in the region can access quality solar installations at great prices. With peak electricity prices exceeding 35c/kWh, we are seeing a simple payback on installed systems come in at under 4 years.”
The new arrangement follows the recent completion of Wauchope Solar’s showcase installation of a 100kw REC solar panel based system on the Port Macquarie Library for the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.
“This synergy combines the support and buying power of Energy Matters one of Australia’s leading renewable energy providers and the dedicated local customer service of Wauchope Solar,” said Wauchope Solar’s Stuart Watson.
Wauchope Solar have installed and serviced over 800kW capacity of small and medium scale solar power systems on the Mid North Coast and have installed and supported hundreds of evacuated tube solar hot water systems since 1983.
Energy Matters is one of Australia’s largest companies solely dedicated to solar energy. Founded in 2005, the company has installed over 15,000 solar panel systems on residences, schools and commercial buildings throughout Australia.
