Our Story

It all started on a hot summer's day in early 2015...

While out running, John noticed a box of butternut pumpkins being sold at the roadside. On the same stretch of road was a farmhouse and lifestyle block kitted out with solar panels and a small wind turbine. If a farmer’s pumpkins can be sold to the local community, why can’t energy?
