Scott Bailey says his job is a bit like having a new puzzle to solve every day, an exercise in problem solving that serves up enjoyment and challenges in roughly equal measure.

Scott owns and manages Bailey Technologies, a family-run small electrical and solar retail business, that offers mobile service throughout western Victoria, including Ballarat, Bacchus Marsh, Melton and surrounds.

He loves getting out and about and working on the tools, but other aspects are also high on his agenda.

“I like the physical side of our work and that every job is different,” Scott says. “But I also enjoy training my apprentices – all locals – and seeing them develop professionally.

“The dedication and enthusiasm they bring to their roles has been an enormous asset in growing our business.

“My approach to every job – and my team shares this – is total professionalism, coupled with respect and courtesy to all clients and an enthusiasm for the task.”

Bailey Technologies carries out a full range of electrical services, from power and data points, split-systems and TV antennas to security lighting, switchboard upgrades and entire commercial fit-outs.

The business is a trusted Clean Energy Council (CEC)-accredited solar panel retailer/installer for households.

Scott says solar panels have never been cheaper or more cost effective.

“With us, it’s not just giving a great price but also great workmanship,” he says. “We genuinely take pride in our work and fiercely guard our good reputation.

“Your solar system is more than just panels and inverter. We use only top-quality components – from the mounting system that holds the panels to your roof to the isolation switches and electrical cabling.

“All free measures, quotes and designs are delivered by our own CEC-accredited designers – no subcontractors – and we’re happy to work with brands other than ours.”

The business offers a five-year warranty on all workmanship and provides solar maintenance and system check-ups.

Here’s a reminder: Solar Victoria’s rebate of up to $2225 and interest-free loan of up to $2252 for eligible householders is still available through Bailey Technologies as an Approved Solar Retailer.

Just to underscore the excellence of Scott’s outfit, here’s part of what customer Nate from Geelong reported: “… Scott and his team of four arrived at 7am and stayed until 3pm, working practically non-stop. Tiles were grinded expertly so none were raised above others. They cleaned up … and the system was turned on that afternoon. Very impressed with the whole process.”
