Join Us in Building Australia’s Renewable Future
With the cost of energy prices rising, and an increasing reliance on unsustainable fuel sources, Australians all over the country are feeling the effects.
Despite having some of the highest power prices in the world, our politicians are simply ignoring the problem, and wasting time instead of looking for real solutions.
So we’re doing it ourselves.
At ShineHub, we’re creating a community-powered solar solution. By combining cutting-edge technology with the Aussie values of independence, fairness, and mateship, we’re making it easy for communities all around Australia to replace Big Energy with Community Solar, that’s powered by your peers.
The ShineHub Story
ShineHub was started by co-founders Alex Georgiou and Jin Woo Kim as a way to contribute to a renewable future, while at the same time fighting back against Australia’s soaring energy prices.
The answer lay in our most abundant natural resource: light. But it’s not enough to just create energy, we need to be able to store it and use it as needed to enable a transition to 100% renewable energy for all.
With 15 years of combined experience in the energy industry, we wanted to create a platform that leveraged this natural resource, protected customers from the solar cowboys, and make solar more available for everyone.
So we created ShineHub, as a community-focused platform that reduces the complexity, confusion, and financial barriers to accessing solar and battery solutions while supporting local jobs and communities.
We’re creating community-powered solar, and giving you control to protect your cost of living. Together, we’re pioneering a new energy future for Australia.
What Makes Us Different
You get real experience from real people
When you talk with us, you’re talking with real people who understand solar right here in Australia. No overseas call centres, ever. You’re getting a direct link to industry experts, sharing their knowledge with you. We connect you with your local certified solar installer, and manage the process for you to ensure you get a great result.
We give back to the community
ShineHub isn’t a big corporate entity. Far from it—we’re an independently-owned, community-focused initiative that’s staffed by people passionate about making a difference. We invest a portion of our profits back into the communities that need them, so we can make a change for good.
How We’re Doing Things Right
We created ShineHub as a way to create a better solar solution for Australia, and the industry is starting to take notice.
ShineHub received the Climate Alliance Business Leadership Awards prize for ‘2018 Australian Innovator of the Year’, recognising our innovative and unique virtual power plant software
This is just the beginning. We’re excited to see where our future will take us all.
