Being recognised as an emerging business leader at last year’s AIM WA Pinnacle Awards was a humbling experience. Starling Energy Group was the proud recipient of the Media Stable Emerging Business Excellence award for our commitment to rewrite Australia’s energy future.

What started initially as a small, passionate project in the South West, has today grown into a thriving organisation across Western Australia that advocates and implements climate change through providing a cleaner, greener battery storage energy solution to its 300 members. The future is solar batteries, and the future is bright!

Starling Energy Group lived up to its mission and put money where our heart is by partnering with the Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund for our $20,000 prize donation, who support the mission to have a positive impact on our planet and our future.
