Who we are

At Energy Terrain, we are passionate about creating a cleaner, happier and healthier environment for the people and communities that live within it. That’s why we established the business in 2017 to accelerate the transition to renewable energy.


We envision a world powered by renewables

How will we get there?




Delivering clean, low cost energy to Australian businesses.

What We Do

Our focus is helping commercial businesses thrive by creating an environment where they can reduce their energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint at the same time.

Energy Terrain creates value by providing quality solar generation infrastructure at no cost to commercial entities, supporting businesses and commercial landlords to accelerate their adoption of rooftop solar energy into their products and services, and to lower their electricity costs.

We understand how important quality and reliability is to our clients. Our brand promise is to ensure that everything we offer is of the highest quality available, affordable and reliable. Our reputation depends on it. Importantly we install, own, monitor and fully maintain the installed infrastructure, leaving our customers to focus on their business, and their customers.
