Internationally renowned travelling celebrity chef, Steven Snow, advocates for home solar installation in our new video testimonial.

In the video ‘Snowy’ discusses the importance of making an individual change to impact environmental issues, as well as the significant savings inherent in converting to solar.


The Northern Rivers local has long been an advocate for sustainability through his Kingscliff restaurant ‘Fins’, formerly in Byron Bay, which was voted the most sustainable seafood restaurant in Australia.

“Being environmentally conscious at home had a big effect on having solar,” said Snowy in the video.

“The reason why I converted is because it just goes with what we do in this house. You know: no air-con, we have rain-water hooked up for all our gardens, for our washing machines, for our bathrooms.”

It shows a glimpse into Snowy’s home while he cooks a delicious dish made predominantly using ingredients from his luscious garden.

“Favourite part about having solar is I know we are off the grid, that’s really empowering,” said Snowy.

Smart Energy Group installed a solar PV system on Snowy’s home in Kingscliff, though he had a solar hot water system on his previous house.

“I chose Smart Energy Group mainly because we are a long time from Byron and this region so I love the fact that they’ve come from here. And what a cool, forward-thinking business,” said Snowy.

“I think that they’re a great company and I have nothing but praise for them. Their after sales, after service, the whole lot…I couldn’t be happier.”

The testimonial is the second of three Smart Energy Group videos in which local Northern River’s heroes discuss the significant benefits of solar.
