Nathan Stone, Director

Nathan derives great satisfaction through empowering others and implementing energy solutions that improve the financial security of homeowners and businesses whilst having a positive environmental side affect.

Nathan is Clean Energy Accredited (since 2000) for:

  • Grid-connect Design/Install (supervise)
  • Stand-alone Power System (SPS PV) Design and Install
  • Endorsement: Hybrid Energy Systems

Since 1997 Nathan has continually honed his knowledge and skills in the renewable energy sector through technical studies and working in different facets of the industry. Starting out as Sales and Design Consultant at Solar Sales Pty Ltd (now Sunpower Corporation Australia) to the wholesale sector (Choice Electric Co) and later working predominantly in the design and installation of stand-alone solar power systems.

In recent years, Nathan has been fortunate; a rare individual who has been able to work in an industry he believes in and which affords him the ability to make a positive impact, namely:

  • Giving genuine and appropriate advice directly to those investing in solar energy and storage systems.
  • Working with customers to help them fully understand their energy systems and to extract the maximum economic and environmental return from their systems.
  • Collaborating closely with quality Australian and overseas manufacturers to ensure Brightstar Energy offers the best value without compromising system reliability.

‘One of the most interesting projects was in 2004 as a system designer with the Bushlight Technical Services Team based at Murdoch University. We were tasked with designing hardware and communication systems to improve the longevity of solar energy systems in indigenous out-station communities throughout Australia.  This program was highly successful. Bushlight systems have at least doubled the average lifetime of systems in indigenous communities and almost all are functioning effectively today.’
