SolarWide is your local Sunshine Coast solar specialist, founded by Nick and Carol Spence and their family in Warana, Queensland. We service the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane and also offer commercial solar power systems in most areas of SE Queensland. SolarWide offers a great range of value for money on the grid and off-grid or battery solar power systems for residential and commercial properties.


After completing an Honours Degree in Business in 1992, our Managing Director Nick Spence ran a chain of successful businesses for over 15 years in the UK along with his wife Carol.

Following their move to the Sunshine Coast in 2005, Nick and Carol had a vision to help people to live more sustainably. Their family supported their passion for renewable energy and with the same vision, three generations of family members came together to form SolarWide.

With his extensive experience in running a family business, Nick knew the key to success was to offer quality products and professional installation along with first class customer service. Over the 9 years, SolarWide has grown immensely. We have installed thousands of solar panels in homes, businesses and community buildings throughout the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and much of southeast Queensland.

SolarWide is a family owned and operated business situated in the Sunshine Coast servicing from Brisbane to Gympie. SolarWide has installed thousands of solar power systems over the years and concentrate only on solar power. This has enabled us to become absolute specialists in solar. SolarWide has committed to raising the bar in the solar industry by signing on to the Clean Energy Council Solar Retailer Code of Conduct.


SolarWide follows a strict product selection and screening process to ensure we only supply high-quality solar modules, inverters and system components from leading and well-established companies to help ensure that you will get a highly efficient system that will prove reliable and safe over time. We will discuss with you the different options of panels and inverters, and the importance of quality with the smaller items too (isolators, rail, cable and small electrical components that go into the Solar power system).


At SolarWide we believe integrity and reputation are everything. We put our customers needs first. We realise happy customers are our greatest advocates and we really appreciate the number of customers we get from referrals.

We love helping locals save on their energy costs. We offer an onsite consultation to enable us to evaluate and understand your needs and recommend the best solar system for your individual requirements.


Our onsite consultation is to allow us to look at your power usage patterns and define what size system you require. We will look at panel positioning to enable the best possible results from your roof, considering space, shade, direction, and angle. We will look at your meter to check it is compliant and work out the positioning of the inverter and how we run the cables between panels, inverter, and switchboard. We will discuss expected power returns and how much we would expect your savings to be and discuss the return on investment.

solar just makes sense.
