The first and most critical issue that effects my family is lack of decent internet. I've had to take a house in Port Augusta and spend half my life living down here rather than at home simply so I can study online and run a small business. Even accessing this site to comment from home is a chore.

HeliostatSA is a large scale turn key provider of solar energy technologies. HeliostatSA was established as an automotive transition initiative experiencing rapid growth developing and delivering projects in Japan, India and the Pacific Islands. Our home is South Australia and our focus is the development and construction of cost effective major solar infrastructure in regional communities. Regions with excellent solar resource like Port Augusta and the Northern Flinders Ranges. We look forward to attending the BBQ and Public Forum to engage with like minded people interested in developing projects that offers many benefits including employment across the region and South Australia.
We have a number of projects planned including Whyalla, Port Augusta, Leigh Creek, Morgan and Berri. Government support is important and we look forward to engaging with the relevant Ministers to progress these projects in a timely fashion.
