Haymans Electrical Rockhampton and Popp'N Solar and Electrical Rockhampton have joined forces to provide and install 12, 6.6kw solar systems, 3 of them being with 9.6kw battery back-up to CQ brigades.

Gladstone Area brigades are - 


Eurimbula (Battery)






Rockhampton Area brigades are –

Westwood (Battery)



Bungundarra (Battery)




“Haymans Electrical has been servicing Rockhampton and greater Central Qld area for many years and we are strong believers in supporting the local communities in which we do business. We couldn’t have thought a better way than by partnering with Pop’N’Solar to donate these solar systems to the Rural Fire Brigade which will provide benefit now and well into the future by saving the stations operational costs on electricity bills. These savings can now be redirected into valuable firefighting equipment and training across the entire 12 stations in Central QLD

Tom Edgecock, Manager, Haymans Electrical Rockhampton.


To have local companies approach the RFBAQ asking how they can best support local brigades with the equipment that they specialise in supplying and installing shows the high regard that Rural Fire Brigades are held in and the amazing culture of community support that Haymans Rockhampton and Popp'N Solar and Electrical Rockhampton demonstrate.

The installing of these systems will commence very soon and will help the brigades in what has already started off as a large fire season.
