It was a desire to take action on climate change and build resilient communities that led Lennox Head couple Tim Hodgson and Alice Moffett to found Light Touch Solar & Electrical in 2011. Since then, it has grown from strength to strength to become one of the Northern Rivers’ leading solar installation companies.

“I chose Light Touch Solar & Electrical to design and install a 30kW solar hybrid battery system on my commercial premise in Byron. Tim and Mark are very polite and helpful. I was impressed how they were always available, giving a lot of attention all the way through the project. I recommend them to anyone looking for an easy and hassle free solar install.”
