Rockys Solar is a business founded on community values.
Rockys Electrical started installing solar more than 15 years ago and installed systems across a large area of Victoria. 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 Solar has been a Clean Energy Council Approved Solar Retailer for 5 years and will become an approved seller under the NETCC (New Energy Tech Consumer Code) once the program begins in Feb 2023. Rockys Solar has an ongoing commitment to comply with the Clean Energy Council Code of Conduct and the NETCC.
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 facilities, businesses including but not limited to: Neerim South Hospital, Tackleworld (Now BCF) and Cabinet Connections in Sale, Italian Australian Club, Harley Davidson, and Traralgon Trailers in the Latrobe Valley, multiple DELWP owned properties throughout the Gippsland region, the Macalister Demonstration Farm as well as other farms across the region, and many 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 lights and 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 took on leadership of the company 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 for various properties by local developer AT Steel, 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 Electrical also undertakes all electrical installation and maintenance at the Australian Sustainable Hardwoods Mill in Heyfield where they have 4 full time electricians stationed.
In addition to A Grade electricians with Clean Energy Council Accreditation, with a strong belief in training and education Rockys also trains new apprentices every year. Rockys also employs 3 Solar Sales and Design team members, 3 full time, and two part time administration staff.
With strong roots in the Gippsland community Rockys are proud sponsors and supporters of many local community groups and events.
