Your Townsville Solar AND Electrical Specialists

About Barra Electrical


Barra Electrical are your Townsville Solar and Electrical Specialists and were formed in 2013.  Our mission is to be a reputable business that offers Solar, Battery and Electrical 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 and build 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 will 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, enjoying blissful air-conditioning on a hot day for example, while simultaneously reducing your bills to a fraction of what they usually are !

Barra Electrical are proud that we employ a team of local people, electricians, apprentices and admin staff. We are committed to the 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!
