Jakes Groves is a proud Katherine local and co-director of Katherine Solar NT along with Leigh Fowkes. The company employs 30 men and women and is committed to serving the local community with a quality solar service.
"Our biggest difference is we are local. We're not contractors. We're not coming in and doing jobs just for massive big companies. We're Territorians," says Groves. "And the more people we keep employed, the more money gets spent in Territory."
From large-scale solar farms to family-owned local solar installers, the Northern Territory's solar industry is generating jobs, boosting the local economy and supplying Territorian businesses and households with local and affordable power.
