As a father-and son-in-law team we have 37 years’ combined experience spanning the spectrum of electrical and solar installation. Originally from ACT/NSW, an interstate move prompted us to team up in 2005 and ActNow Energy Solutions was born.

Our passion for our customers lies at the heart of all we do, which is why, as our company has grown, we’ve hand-picked and trained a team of specialists who each bring a unique skill set to enhance our service offering. As a result, we have a well-earned reputation for exceptional customer service and quality workmanship.

We take great pride in providing friendly, professional, customer-focused service, and excellent communication throughout all our electrical and solar installation and maintenance work. We specialise in providing our customers with the most effective and efficient electrical and solar power solutions to suit their unique circumstances and requirements. We are licensed to carry out inspections, auditing and metering exchanges on behalf of the relevant industry authorities.

Our Team

Allan Parker

Director

Allan started his career as an Electrical Apprentice in 1988 with ACTewAGL. He  transcended the ranks, succeeding in a variety of roles including Service Manager and Asset Manager. While working for AGL, he relocated to the sunny state of Queensland, along with his wife, Julie, their youngest son, and their two dogs, to take up the role of National Sales Manager. This role saw Allan providing electricity, gas, and energy services (including PV solar) to a distinguished client-base of household brand names.

After working for AGL for 21 years, Allan identified a need for tailored solar energy and electrical solutions in Brisbane and surrounding areas and this prompted him to start Act Now Energy Solutions in partnership with his soon-to-be son-in-law, Jason.

He is a passionate NSW supporter and, when he’s not working or hanging out with his family and adored grandkids, ‘Poppy’ also enjoys regular surf skis along the Shorncliffe coastline.

Jason Satchell

Director

Jason Satchell was a high achiever from a very young age. He proved this by completing his electrical apprenticeship while playing football for both his hometown (in the ACT) and NSW.

At the tender age of 22, Jason decided to move toBrisbane, and start Act Now Energy Solutions in partnership with Allan. The young man’s drive and determination saw him through the bumpy road of self-employment, learning as he went. At first, he worked from his van on the road and lived at his (future) in-laws’ place, while continuing to play his beloved Football for the Qld Aspley Hornets and NE AFL.

While he may still have been considered a spring chicken by many of his peers, various industry regulators took note of the high quality of a number of Jason’s installations, and their good opinion of his workmanship, led to greater opportunities.

With his characteristic determination and enthusiasm, Jason grabbed these with both hands, doing all the necessary training and self-development to emerge as a qualified nation-wide inspector, fit to carryout audits and inspections on behalf of industry regulatory bodies—a service which he now offers to our clients.
