About Solar Bright

Since 2008

We’ve Been Bringing Free Energy and Light to Our Customers

SolarBright is a family owned, dynamic Australian solar and skylight business. The company was founded by Paul Yako and his wife Ximena in 2008. From humble beginnings in a rented upstairs office, SolarBright has grown into one of the largest residential and commercial solar installers in NSW and Australia’s largest maker of tubular skylights. We operate from our own purpose-built facility in Prestons that houses our head office, showroom, factory, and warehouse.

The SolarBright “family” has grown to 25 staff (including two of Paul and Ximena’s sons). The combined experience of the team is over 100 years. On top of this we have over 10 installation teams working across Sydney and NSW.

We are proud to have helped over 16,000 families and businesses save money off their power bills with our range of leading energy saving solar products.  We have brightened up thousands of homes and premises with our skylight products.

SolarBright services Sydney and NSW. The Port Macquarie branch opened in 2019 servicing the mid north coast, Taree, Kempsey and up to Coffs Harbour. Our energy consultants cover the Illawarra, Central Coast, Newcastle, Hunter Valley, the Central West, Tamworth, and the New England regions.

Our Customers’ Experiences


We specialise in both residential and commercial solar systems as well as providing solar batteries for energy storage.

If you have researched the solar industry, you may be aware that over the last 10 years hundreds of solar companies have come and gone. They have left behind thousands of customers with inferior systems that no longer function, backed with worthless warranties.

It makes us angry to see customers that have been taken advantage of by unscrupulous operators. Each month we are removing these cheap, dodgy systems . Some are only 3 or 4 years old and no longer working.

This drives our passion at SolarBright to provide Australian families and businesses with high quality solar at accessible prices. We supply the best solar and battery technology from leading solar brands including Max Power Solar, Tesla, Hyundai, SolarEdge, SMA and Sofar. We back our customers with outstanding support and service.

SolarBright is committed to the highest levels of quality, expertise, and customer service in the solar industry. This is recognised with many top industry credentials, including:

  • NETCC Approved Seller (replaces the CEC Approved Solar Retailer program)
  • Tesla Certified Powerwall Installer
  • SMA PowerUP Connect Partner

We are proud of the fact that our contact details are exactly as they were the day we opened. This gives our customers peace of mind they are dealing with a reputable, long-standing company.

In the current crazy race to the bottom with cheap solar, it is unfortunate that more customers will get caught out. SolarBright will never be the cheapest, that is not our aim or claim. We believe in fair pricing for our customers. Pricing that allows us to be there in the future if they need help or support.

We love the fact that our systems not only save our customers money they also reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Combined, all the systems SolarBright installed in 2020 will save approximately 15.6 million kgs of carbon emissions per year. Over 15 years this gives an astounding reduction of 234,000 tonnes!

Skylights and Solar Roof Ventilators

Our innovative range of MaxLight Tubular Skylights are designed and manufactured in Australia by SolarBright. We produced our first “Deluxe” series of skylights in 2008 and introduced the improved DL models in 2008.

Research and development of the skylights resulted in the superior MaxLight range of residential and commercial skylights. They launched in 2014 and have brightened thousands of dark rooms and spaces for our customers. They are backed with an industry best 20-year warranty.

Our MaxBreeze range of solar powered roof ventilation fans are a solar powered, high-tech version of the old mechanical “Whirly-Bird” roof ventilator. They can help our customers reduce air-conditioning costs and keep their homes more comfortable in summer.

On a hot summer day your roof cavity can heat up to over 60°C. The clever design of the MaxBreeze, with a thermostat control, means that when the cavity heats up to about 30°, the unit turns on. The inbuilt, compact solar panel powers a DC motor and fan to suck the hot air out of the roof cavity.

Our MaxLight skylights and MaxBreeze solar roof ventilators are perfect for DIY installation.They are available throughout Australia from our network of distributors.

Thank You

We thank every one of the thousands of customers who trust SolarBright. We have reduced their power costs with solar. Our Maxlight skylights have brightened their homes and premises. Our MaxBreeze ventilation fans have helped cool their homes in hot summers.

The SolarBright team looks forward to hopefully helping you and thousands of more customers save money and help the environment as we continue to grow. If you choose not to go with us, then we advise you to choose wisely.

Remember that the “bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of a cheap price is forgotten.”
