About Us

Nick ChapmanSolarWorks is fully accredited, experienced and professional. Located inland from Cairns, SolarWorks has been established since 1992. We work with solar, wind and hydro power, ranging from supply and installation of home solar panels to large domestic, farming and remote community projects.

Our family home, office and workshop operate totally on renewable energy. When we began building our house in 1984 we knew we wanted to be totally independent of grid power. Our humble beginnings with alternative power were a petrol generator and the car battery which was charged each day when Grace drove to work. We’ve steadily built that up to incorporate solar and wind power with a diesel generator back up for those excessively long, rainy weeks.

Got an emergency? We’re on it!

Travel across far north Queensland is part of Nick’s life. Our work ranges from Bundaberg to remote far north Queensland / Thursday Island and west to Birdsville.

SolarWorks is fully accredited by CEC (the current regulatory body for renewable energy) to design and install renewable energy power systems as well as grid connected systems.

When you engage us to work for you, we can talk about the most cost-effective custom designed system that suits your individual needs, including system requirements, cost analysis or components. We are committed to you having a solar, wind and or hydro power system that works efficiently, is state of the art and not going to let you down.
