Northern Renewable Group (NRG) was founded in 2018 by Jake Groves and Leigh Fowkes, under Katherine Solar NT. The company’s directors have been in the solar and electrical industry for over a decade.

As a team, NRG pride themselves on quality workmanship and the fantastic customer relationships they continue to develop within our local community.

Jake, a born and bred local, returned to Katherine in 2017 to offer his knowledge on all things solar and electrical to help property owners save, while contributing towards a more sustainable future.

Leigh Fowkes has been working in the electrical and renewable energy industry for over 14 years. He has a strong background in commercial electrical and grid connect and standalone power systems. Leigh’s strongest belief is focused on building strong business relationships.

The group has now grown to a team of 15, with offices in Darwin and Katherine. With full electrical, and PV licensing, and with ISO and CAL accreditation; NRG have secured multiple defence and Northern Territory Government contracts and still maintain great working relations with commercial and residential customers.
