Who we are

Business owners Tim and Alice live in Lennox Head and operate from the Light Touch Solar & Battery Showroom in the Byron Industrial Estate. They believe in giving the power back to homes and businesses and building resilient communities. Our team of solar installers, electricians & customer support specialists are a brilliant blend of locals whom you can read more about here.

We are extremely happy to recommend Light Touch Solar & Electrical for installation of solar power. We thoroughly compared 3 installers & their product offering realising there was a great difference of overall quality and attention to detail with service.  We chose Light Touch as the products they offered are superior by comparison as they only select from the green technology and high quality products. We live near Byron and felt it important to go for a local business because we value local business and the follow on of service if needed. Above all, this small business is totally reliable as everything Tim said would be done has been done without any issues. I have already recommended them to a friend & will be happy to recommend to others in the future.

Property Owner, Byron Bay, with Solar Power Starter

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.

The best part is the after-sales support. They are very responsive. Tim and Mark have been fantastic in installing the whole system really thoroughly and very well, it looks beautiful – we have had comments from people admiring how nice it is. The service is wonderful. They’ve put a very, very good system together.
