Mick Harris: Managing Director, industry icon and electrical apprentice
Mick is a pioneer of the renewable energy industry with more than 40 years’ experience in the design, construction and installation of renewable energy systems. He has extensive knowledge of solar power and battery systems, solar hot water, lighting and energy efficiency systems and is a trained PV systems designer and commercial energy auditor. Mick is the founder of the ATA International Projects Group which has installed more than 1000 solar power systems in East Timor.
Mick was also one of the pioneers of CERES in Brunswick, a sustainability centre dedicated to the teaching of environmentally sound practices and many of the power systems still in use were built by him. These principles were a foundation for the early Enviroshop culture and still endure as we evolved into the solar engineering machine, Envirogroup.
At some point in 2019, Mick decided to become an apprentice. Probably so he can wear hi-viz around the office.
