Naked Energy were prompt, pleasant and a pleasure to do business with.
Sabine – RedlynchPrivate Client
Very happy with Naked Energy product and service. Not the cheapest quote but best service and follow up. Only company to provide free system check after a few weeks to audit performance.
Craig – Cooya beachPrivate Client
I went to the Naked factory and seen their systems at work. They then came out and visited us on site and answered every question I asked - unlike some who beat around the bush and always answered the questions with what we would save in $$$, not what I had asked. The installation was excellent and they were happy to place the inverter exactly where I wanted and they split the panels along two faces on the roof. They were negotiable. Excellent Customer Service.
Rama – Edge HillPrivate Client
I considered many other suppliers and quotes. Although Naked Energy was not the lowest I decided on Naked Energy mainly for after sales service and locality. The sales person responded to every questions and needs I had. He also advised on ways and means to save energy.
Peter – SmithfieldPrivate Client
Good friends of ours had a happy experience with them, that was good enough for us, and we were not disappointed. Even when we had some issues, they were extremely quick to rectify matters, to our financial advantage.
Brent - Bayview HeightsPrivate Client
I couldn't recommend the team at Naked Energy any more. They were educational, professional, honest, and very fast. I did my homework before going solar, and they had the best quality products and prices that were even less than other companies cheap product. Their communication was great, and my system was installed in 2 weeks from deposit. The install team worked non-stop until the job was done, they were very professional, and left everything clean after they left.
As a Canadian, I love Hockey.....but this one named Joe isn't my favourite. On May 13th he will drop the budget and is already saying "MASSIVE CUTS".
Well, the Liberals have never been a fan of Renewable Energy or anything good for the planet, so one of those cuts will likely be the Solar STC Rebate. This is the upfront discount you get off a solar system:
$2250 for a 3kW System
$3700 for a 5kW System
$22,350 for a 30kW (commercial) System
Come to our OPEN HOUSE Info Night tomorrow 30/4/14 or 7/5/14 from 6-8 to learn about solar, the rebates, how much it can save you, and what products are best. There will be great specials to take advantage of as well.
See you there!!

Naked Energy - Cairns Solar Power Experts
Queensland and Cairns have become one of the hottest solar uptake places in the world. With our record sun hours and low cost installations, it's no wonder. So when the State Government announced they are going to pass the buck of feed-in tariff responsibility to the utility companies, what does that mean for Cairns and the Cairns Solar consumer? (more…)
This is the tagline and motto of a German company, Younicos, that believes they have solved a major hurdle in moving to a 100% renewable energy grid.....GRID FREQUENCY.
In Germany, regardless of the demand of their 80GW grid, they require between 20-25GW of "must-run" power in order to maintain the balance between frequency and grid stability. (more…)
The Federal Governments announcement today to cut funding of the Australia Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) by 14.5% ($435 million) is yet another ignorant move by Canberra in their quest to pretend there is nothing wrong with burning fossil fuels for power. The people of the Philippines thank you Tony!!
If we treat our bodies with disrespect, they clearly let us know that we need to change or things could get tragic. (more…)
For year now in Australia, Suntech has been a popular name in Solar. Their product has been middle to top of the chain in price, and quality has been very good. However last year they, amongst a large group of other solar companies, had financial difficulty. There were rumours of them fudging numbers and borrowing from the left to give to the right, and words like liquidation and administration were being thrown around. (more…)
There have been rumours for the past 6-12 months that most panel companies around the globe are operating at a loss, due to the fierce competitiveness. We have seen many companies fold, and many being bailed out by their governments. The PHOTON International is a publication about the solar industry and they have what is called a PHOTON Price Index, which basically shows stock prices for solar cells. In the last week (more…)
On Friday Naked Energy attended James Cook University’s inaugural Sustainability Symposium and Fair where community members, local businesses, authors, researchers and politicians came together to share, inspire and discuss sustainability issues that impact the world in the face of a rising population, and more specifically, (more…)
If you have been following the news this week surrounding the Queensland Competition Authorities decision to raise power bills by more than 20% you would be well aware of the political ping pong match being played around this matter. The all too familiar blame game between the Federal Government, who sets the price of electricity tariffs, and the Queensland Government, who owns the infrastructure, is being waged with a third culprit, Green Energy Schemes, also being dragged into the showdown. So what is the truth (more…)
...chances are it is, and the same is true with solar prices these days.
UNLEASH Solar is the most recent large Southern company to go bust because of selling dodgy systems at far to low of prices.

When you are purchasing a solar power system for your home, its no different than purchasing anything else.....you get what you pay for. (more…)
If anyone picked up a copy of today"s Cairns Post they would have noticed Naked Energy"s Wade Allen dazzling the cover page with a write up about the Queensland Competition Authorities power price rise and how solar panels may be the answer to combatting these price increases. The electricity price rises, which were announced last week, are set to increase the average family’s power bill by 21.4% which is, (more…)
It"s all over the news this weekend- Queenslanders are getting ready for an enormous power bill increase as the Queensland Consumer Authority recommends a 21.4% increase in power bills this year. It comes as no real surprise as there has been plenty of talk and speculation around this decision for months. With the writing on the wall it is time for the people of Cairns and Far North Queensland to make a choice about how they regulate and source their energy. (more…)
Over half of the 75,000 Queenslanders who signed up for the 44 cent feed in tariff risk missing this golden opportunity if they don’t organise an installation soon.
To take advantage of the generous feed in tariff solar PV systems must be installed and meter up grades organised by June 30 2013. (more…)
For all those who have been to our office at 31F Campus Shopping Village, Smithfield the next time you come in it will look quite differently.
As a backbone of the Cairns Solar Power industry Naked Energy has renovated their office to show off our renewable energy products. It isn't quite finished yet, but it has been transformed into a more energy efficient renewable office with LED Lighting, Solar Air Conditioning (this week), and if we can convince our building owner to go solar....that will be next. (more…)
The current STC (Small-scale Technology Certificate) rebate program has a maximum of 100kW whereby the end user can receive an upfront discount from their solar supplier. This means that in Queensland, Solar PV Systems up to 100kW can receive a rebate equal to the Size of the System (in kW) x 1.382 (MW/year production per kW of panels) x 15 (years of carbon offset prepaid). (more…)
Another day, another company adding to the list of smart technologies to enhance energy efficiency and smart grid potential for customers. This time, its Arlington Virginia’s Opower, a leader in providing customer based solutions for utilities. (more…)
The big wind news of the past year that we keep trumpeting is that US wind power accounted for more new US power capacity in 2012 than coal (which actually declined), natural gas, nuclear, solar, or anything else. (more…)
There’s a lot in the news these days about solar manufacturers going bankrupt. This news is often disheartening, and sometimes used to discredit solar technology and the industry itself. Based on a study I just recently completed, I can tell you that the global industry shakeout is just beginning. (more…)
