About Us

not your average solar installer

Your local leading solar specialist
since 2014

Born out of the need to service and repair solar systems installed by companies that no longer exist, NRG Solar is one of the most reputable solar installers operating in Adelaide and Sydney. We’ve worked with many iconic, local brands and people to bring them clean, green and stress-free energy in residential and commercial settings.

Eddy May co-founded NRG Solar in 2014 with exceptional customer service and an unending enthusiasm for renewable energy at its heart. You won’t find a more dedicated and reliable solar team.

We do more than just install and maintain solar systems. Our team is truly passionate about making a difference at every level and our solar expertise is unrivalled. Our core values of care and sustainability drive our day to day decisions and steer our business forward.

Our national and international reputation

We’re an industry-leading team with a national reputation, involved in governing bodies and initiatives across the Australian solar space. 

From the Solar Industry and Home Battery Scheme Reference Groups to the Smart Energy Council, our directors are on the frontlines of the renewables field as board members and key-note speakers. 

Our reputation is even recognised internationally by leading solar manufacturers across the globe. We’ve been trusted as Fronius’ favourite Australian installer for our proven track-record of high quality work.

Making a difference

Our mission is to help ensure a cleaner and greener planet for generations to come by delivering reliable, quality solar solutions. Since 2014, our work with solar has generated the equivalent of over 970,000 trees planted, reducing tonnes of carbon-emissions each year.

In 2021, NRG Solar donated a premium solar system to raise money for Variety SA - the Children's Charity. The system was auctioned to the highest bidder, raising important funds to support kids and families who are facing challenges through sickness, disadvantage or living with disability.

Leading the Australian solar industry

Outside our day-to-day residential and commercial solar system installation and maintenance, we’re also involved in Australian-first solar trials, helping the solar industry work towards a brighter future. 

We’ve partnered with SA Power Networks for several years on an Australian-first trial on flexible exports for solar PV systems. These trials are helping SA resident’s make the most out of their solar systems.

We want to ensure that every solar panel system in Australia is safe, reliable and providing the best return-on-investment for its owner. With NRG Solar, you can be confident that you have the best solar system for your home or business, validated by our ongoing trials at our in-house testing station in Richmond, SA.

What our customers have to say

Kristy F
NRG Customer, kanmantoo

From the moment I met onsite with Nicola to the completion of install, NRG have been completely honest, up front and informative.  I felt comfortable to make the choice with NRG virtually on the spot -  I was about to go with a lesser known, cheaper company but glad I did all the ground work and read reviews. They have communicated well at every step and I have only high praise for the team.  My system (installed early June 2021) is already working well (and as expected) so looking forward to kicking my electricity bills to the kerb! Thank you NRG - highly recommend! Super lovely to deal with and very happy with the install, panels and inverter.
