Northern Beaches Solar – meet our local expert

Customers looking for the best solar PV deals on Sydney’s Northern Beaches can benefit from the expertise of the new addition to the Solar Choice Team, Ivor Kades. Bringing considerable experience in solar PV installations at both residential and commercial scale, to his role of Northern Beaches Solar Broker, Ivor will be visting customers looking for systems over 3kW who need a little extra help.

Ivor trained and qualified as an electrician before going on to specialise in solar photovoltaic installations, he’s installed many North Shore solar projects as well as solar installations in sites across Sydney. In addition to holding TAFE qualifications in the design and installation of solar PV systems, he has several years experience working with some of the states major installers. With experience in the Northern Beach solar market, having worked on both small scale residential projects and large scale commercial tenders before switching to sales, he will be a valuable resource to customers as well as the Solar Choice Team.

Locally, the highest profile project Ivor worked on was the solar PV system for the heritage-listed Turbine Hall on Cockatoo Island. The 65kW system comprised 216 solar panels and six inverters, covering an area of 680 square metres. Due to the heritage listing of the building the two and a half kilometers of cabling that the system requires is concealed maintaining the buildings original appearance.
