Your Townsville Solar and Electrical Specialist

Family owned, local and trusted

About Barra Electrical

Barra Electrical was formed 7 years ago.  After working as an employee for two failed Solar Companies I saw the need for a reputable business to offer solar solutions to the Townsville community.

I have been working as an electrician in Townsville since my apprenticeship in 1996.  In 2010 I became focused on working in renewable energy and it was not long after  Barra Electrical was started.  My goal has always been to offer the best quality services and products to the Townsville Region whilst building a successful business to support my family and offer employment opportunities to locals.

The Solar Industry has attracted some less than reputable companies in pursuit of quick profits at the expense of the customer with too good to be true offers.

Barra Electrical remains true to our mission, and we only supply the best quality products suited to the Townsville climate – products that I would use on my own home.

We understand what is important to families, We make sure our customers are equipped with the knowledge of how to best use their power and reduce their electricity bill.  It’s all about increasing comfort in the home, by using air conditioning, appliances, pool pumps etc without excessive electricity bills.

Barra Electrical are proud that we now employ 11 local people, electricians, apprentices and admin staff. We are committed to training and development of our team.

Our business is continuing to expand every year and we plan to continue to grow in this exciting modern industry bring solar benefits to more people in the Townsville Region.

All our team are here to help you!
