Solar Charge

Solar Charge has been selling and installing Solar Power systems in Victoria since 1972. Started as a small company in Brighton, we grew through the 1970s and 80s to become one of the leading specialists in Australia. We have been installing Grid Connected solar power systems on homes and businesses around Melbourne since the late 1990’s.

The current Managing Director Dr. Richard Potter joined the company in 1994 and together with Peter Israel, purchased the business from the retiring owner in 2001. Known for their expertise in battery based systems throughout Victoria, Solar Charge has always been at the forefront of solar power developments. Richard has served many years on the Australian Standards development committees for the industry and gives numerous presentations to community groups to educate and inform. Solar Charge led the way in 1998 by installing their first Grid Connected system in Brighton, a real landmark in Australian solar power, well before others entered the market and politicians learnt to spell the word “sustainability”.

Solar Charge specialises in Design and Installation of quality solar power systems in Metro Melbourne and throughout rural Victoria. They provide realistic solutions, matched to the customer’s requirements.

They are now combining their 40 years experience with battery systems with their 15 years of Grid installations by providing battery options/ UPS systems which provide ultimate flexibility in offsetting peak Electricity Tariffs. These customers look to use their battery reserve during the peak tariff and then recharge using solar and off peak electricity. This delivers customers the best protection against future rising electricity prices.

Solar Charge uses hand-picked Electrical Contractor Installation teams that have been installing thousands of systems for the company for many years. Quality and back up service are second to none.

Commercial properties and Businesses are also taking advantage of the quality and experience Solar Charge brings to mid-sized projects. Installations on factory and business roofs are proving a real savings investment. Solar Charge provides a no obligation, free quote to see what utilising solar can do to reduce running costs.

Our systems typically vary from 2 to 20kW depending on the customer needs. Here are just a few examples of system arrays from homes, schools, shopping centers and commercial premises. Battery based systems in both rural and suburban homes are a specialty.
