Happy New Year

2013:2014

With the New Year merely hours away, we though it fitting to do a recap on our year, here at Excel Solar Pty Ltd. There is never a dull moment in the Excel office, and 2013 was certainly no exception. With the Government and electricity authorities keeping us on our toes at all times, we have definitely been kept busy.

We would like to sincerely thank all of the people who have supported us in 2013, and we look forward to another great year in 2014.

With that being said, here are some photos from 2013;

Master Electricians Australia represents the best of the electrical trade across the country and is the electrical industry’s leading business partner, knowledge source and advocate.

Every year, Master Electricians holds the Apprentice of the Year competition. This gives employers the opportunity to nominate an apprentice that they feel to be commendable and worthy of the award. Along with the nomination, they need to supply a full record of everything the apprentice has done over the years as well as letters of recommendation.

This year, Excel Power (our sister company) nominated Mr. Brendan Radley for Master Electrician’s Australia 3rd Year Apprentice of the Year. As a result of his nomination and all the hard work he has put in over the years, Brendan secured the award of 3rd Year Apprentice of the Year.

Throughout his many years at Excel Power, Brendan has continually shown dedication and excellent work ethic. With nothing but glowing recommendations from the customers he has worked with, Brendan is without a doubt an award-winning apprentice.

Killing the industry dinosaurs

We have recently come across the linked article, and thought it very interesting.

This article talks about the new book being written by Tony Seba and his predictions for the future of solar technologies. In his last book, he predicted how it would redefine the world’s energy markets and create an investment opportunity worth tens of trillions of dollars. For his next book, Tony Seba has made some even more dramatic forecasts. The new predictions read that by 2030, solar will have made the fossil fuel industry more or less redundant.

In an interview with RenewEconomy in San Francisco last month, Tony quoted “I am incredibly optimistic that by 2030, nuclear, coal, gas, big hydro, and oil will be all but obsolete”.

Germany is at 45% renewable energy

Germany has broken its previous solar power output record by approx. 0.5GW  according to the SMA Solar Technology live solar power output page. With this increase, it means that solar power is producing about 40% of the country’s electricity demand. Combine this with the electricity provided by wind technology, renewable energy is providing just over 45% of Germany’s electricity consumption.

Giving Back to The Locals

As a local company here in Toowoomba, community is very close to our hearts. Having some of our staff involved in rural fire brigades around the darling downs, we also know the trials and tribulations that come with being a part of such a group.

After being approached by brigade members, we gladly donated the requested solar panels as well as supplied all the necessary hardware at no cost to the Dalveen Rural Fire Brigade. The donated materials will be used to maintain communications during power outages, via a battery back-up system, which will in turn ensure the safety of their firefighters. Being able to contribute to such a worthy cause was such an honor; we would like to thank the Dalveen Rural Fire Brigade for involving us.

In the photo to the above, you see Mr. Michael Reiken donating the solar panels to the Dalveen Rural Fire Brigade’s representatives, First Officer Jim Mitchell and Treasurer Phil Zikan.
