A beautiful solar system for a stunning Wye River home

After his original home was destroyed by bushfire, Phillip rebuilt, working with an architect to make the most of the stunning location, working with the landscape.

He wanted a sustainable home, but not at the expense of aesthetics. Fortunately, solar panels have come a long way since being purely functional in design.

Working with RACV Solar, Philip decided to follow our recommendations to install an all-black system that would also stand up to the harsh coastal conditions. This sleek look perfectly complemented the modern style of the home, while the panels and components were selected for their durability and outstanding warranties under these specific conditions.
