ShineHub isn't a solar company - they're a total game changer.

"ShineHub is a game changer in the solar space. They don't just sell one product - they compare all the available options, partner up with the best local solar companies, and offer amazingly affordable 'community rates' to bring down the price for everyone. I've found my solution and I can only hope my story will help you find yours."

My name is Cassandra Letton. I’m a mum and carer of 3 amazing special needs boys. We currently live with my father in Adelaide and like many, we’ve struggled with the soaring cost of electricity in South Australia. Going solar and being our own ‘power plant’ has always been my dream.

I’ve looked into countless solar companies and products - seeking quotes and trying to work out a way that was financially viable for us, with a reputable, reliable and quality company. 

The more research I did, the more disheartened I became. It seemed I may only have two choices - quality with a prohibitive price tag, or cheap and nasty. My dream was beginning to look unreachable.

Then, ShineHub came along. Our game changer.  

I saw their ‘Community Solar Program’ was coming to our local area, so I registered for their free information evening, went along, listened and learned. I walked out of that event thinking ‘that was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made’.

I was so impressed by the honest and detail-orientated information being freely provided to us. It was clear that ShineHub had a true depth of knowledge into the intricacies of quality solar systems. I could tell they were the real deal just by looking at their partners and collaborations – most notably, the Australian Solar Council (now called the ‘Smart Energy Council’).

I am so glad I went along to my local information evening. The presentation was clear and interesting, they had lots of different products on display and solar engineers on hand to answer questions and assess my unique situation.

This may sound extreme, but hearing about ShineHub’s model, how they work, their ethos, community approach and their goals – brought tears to my eyes - tears of happiness and excitement! Suddenly my seemingly impossible dream was looking like a reality.

ShineHub is a game changer in the solar space. They don’t just sell one product – they compare all the available options, partner up with the best local solar companies, and offer amazingly affordable ‘community rates’ to bring down the price for everyone.

After the presentation, I had a long chat with the ShineHub team. They gave me a personalised quote and some great advice for my father’s house. I rushed home to tell my dad the great news.  He was overcome with emotion – no more worrying about energy bills, no more stressing about running the air-con and heaters.

I’ve never felt so empowered - to finally be free from the crippling shackles of big power. A weight had been lifted off our shoulders!

The following day, I remembered I had a prearranged consultation with another big name solar company.  I decided not to cancel the appointment, even though I was already set on going with ShineHub.

It took less than 15 minutes for me to call out the rep from this company for selling cheap inferior products. I found myself education him with some of the information I had learned at the ShineHub event.

The rep ended up apologising to me for not being up to date with technology. He admitted he gave me some false information and asked if he could write down some of the information so he could research it himself!

I was a victim of big energy for too long. While the big energy companies get richer and greedier, the rest of us are sacrificing our lifestyles to pay for their dirty, unsustainable energy. I’ve found my solution and I can only hope my story will help you find yours.

When ShineHub visits your local area, seize the opportunity by going along to one of their events. Everyone could benefit from some free advice from a solar engineer. Even if you don’t end up going solar, I can guarantee you will still find the experience interesting and enjoyable!  

Shine on,

Cassandra Letton
