Favourite project and why? 

Our ongoing volunteer work in Timor. I have enjoyed being able to bring sustainable power sources to schools and hospitals who previously relied on less eco-friendly options. Seeing the difference to their lives through photo updates of the community and regular contact is highly rewarding.

Favourite project and why? 

Spot on Signs Solar Installation:

It was great seeing the project through from start to finish - from the initial consultation, to identifying the products and services that we could provide that others couldn’t to complete the installation.

Euromanga/Quilpie Solar Installation & Air Conditioning Job:

Loved this job due to the challenges we knew were going to be inevitable, but that we would work through them together as a team. We really got to see Excel’s strong focus on quality and team culture come through with this one.

Favourite project and why?

A large residential solar system installation in Rangeville. The system was installed on a double-storey house and was spaced over 2 different roof spaces, which made for a challenging install. How we all worked as a team to get the system installed in good time made the end result even more rewarding.
