Meet the team behind radian energy

RADIAN ENERGY began in 2018 after a meeting with a high school on the outskirts of Brisbane. Dave and David were shocked by the electricity costs this school was paying. Costs that could pay for two extra full time teachers, play equipment, a sports shed, a truckload of books! RADIAN ENERGY began as a means to fix this one situation using smart thinking and solar panels. Now two years later and with everything we have learned on the journey, our dream that these same products could one day be available to business and communities has become reality.
