Rockys Solar is a business founded on community values.
Rockys started installing solar more than 12 years ago. In late in 2017, with an expanding focus on designing and installing solar and other energy solutions, Rockys opened a solar showroom in Sale and began trading with the name Rockys Solar to better identify the Energy Solutions side of the business.
Rockys has designed and installed solar systems on over 1000 homes in Gippsland and undertaken some large commercial projects including installing off grid solar at Licola Wilderness Village, grid connected solar at Wellington Shire Council’s Depots in Yarram and Maffra, multiple DELWP owned properties throughout the Gippsland region, Cabinet Connections, the Macalister Demonstration Farm and more. See our Clients Page for further details.
Rockys Solar’s story began more than 40 years ago as Rocky’s Electrical, founded by Electrician Rob “Rocky” Hekman who worked within the Gippsland community offering electrical contracting services covering everything from installing power switches to full commercial building fit-outs. Rockys Electrical has developed a strong reputation for quality and service throughout the Gippsland region. In recent years, Rob’s son Brett has taken leadership of the business and will continue to serve the Gippsland community over the next 40 years.
Some of Rockys Electrical’s major electrical projects over recent years include full electrical installation at the Wellington Shire Yarram Hub, The Education Department at Lavella College in Traralgon, Latrobe Shire Council’s Moe Precinct Community Center, Victoria Police Sale Headquarters, the new Aldi building and carpark in Traralgon and more.
Rockys currently employs 6 A Grade Electricians, 3 of which are Clean Energy Council Certified Installers. With a strong belief in training and education Rockys also employs 5 Apprentices, and periodically engage a number of labourers and work experience students throughout the year. 3 administration staff are also employed full time and one part time.

Last December, Rockys Solar installed Tesla Powerwall to an existing solar system for Kim Dunlop near Sale in Gippsland. We gave Kim a call to see how he was feeling about his Powerwall 7 months on and were so pleased to hear him use words like "Really happy", "Rapt," and "Brilliant," we decided to catch up with him to share his story with you. Watch the video to hear what he had to say about his Tesla Powerwall.Kim has a 3.8kW solar system that was installed by another company. With the closure of Hazelwood Power Station last year he had become concerned about potential blackouts and power instability and wanted to make the most of his existing solar system by adding battery storage. Kim came to Rockys when other local solar installers had a six month wait on Tesla Powerwall. Seven months on and Rockys Solar assure our customers in Gippsland that there is no wait time for Powerwall installs. We have Powerwall in stock and ready to install today and into the future.If you would like to know how Tesla Powerwall added to a new or existing solar system can help give you energy reassurance as it has for Kim, give us a call on (03) 5148 9479 or send us a message on our website http://rockyssolar.com.au#TeslaPowerwall #Gippsland #Solar
