We could all do with one less thing to think about and thankfully when it comes to monitoring our solar, there are 'guardian angels' to assist.

Katherine Solar NT now offers full system monitoring, installing a device that measures the solar's performance and how much energy the building is using.

"We check all systems remotely to make sure they are operating correctly so there are no nasty surprises," said co-CEO Leigh Fowkes.

"We often say we become 'the guardian angel for their solar'."

Seeing a need for quality solar in the area, Leigh partnered with Jake Groves two years ago to form Katherine Solar NT.

The former electrical contractors believed they could offer something better for the same price, if not cheaper, than some of the low standard systems they had seen.

"We design and install custom solar packages for everything residential and commercial," Leigh said.

"All of the gear we use I would be happy to sell to my grandmother."

Katherine Solar NT offers a full service for the life of the solar system from install through to system monitoring, cleaning, upgrades and battery packs.

The business is local, yet competitively priced and Leigh said that the Katherine Solar NT team actually cares about you reducing your power bill.

"We wanted to build a relationship with the client and care for their system for the life of it, not just whack one up on their roof and leave."

Leigh encourages people to do their research before installing solar.

"There are so many businesses who just want your money and that's it.

"Solar really does require planning and after care - someone who can watch and advise."

All members of the team live locally and support the community offering full after service care, competitive pricing, quality gear/installations and they actually want to make a difference when it comes to power cost reduction.

"If anyone just wants to know more about solar, just pop into our office and have a yarn," said Leigh.

"We won't splurge our sales speak at you, we're just happy to help and advise."
