About Us

Two Businesses in One

Dunne Solar and Electrical and Rivers Solar and Electrical have merged together to bring you Illawarra’s best solar and electrical service in one. Both businesses are equipped with reputable solar and electrical  skills and knowledge. We are also highly specialised in Grid connect, Hybrid and Stand alone solar systems.


We’re local, like you..

Based in the Illawarra, just north of Wollongong, Dunne Solar is regarded by the solar industry as one of the most reputable and professional installers in NSW. Owner/installer Paul Dunne has overseen the installation, maintenance, and auditing of more than 1,000 residential and commercial solar power systems throughout the Illawarra, Shoalhaven, Sutherland Shire, Wingecaribee, Macarthur and Greater Sydney regions. Paul also works closely with Jacob Benko (son of the late Steven Benko) who has a long standing reputation within the electrical and solar industry within the Illawarra and wider NSW areas.

Dunne right the first time

When you have a solar panel system installed by Dunne Solar, you are assured that all aspects of the installation will be completed with stringent quality control by Paul and his team, giving you peace of mind that the system you have chosen is going to perform as it should from Day 1, and over the long term.

We take the hard work out of switching to solar by taking care of everything for you. This includes applying to connect your system to the electricity grid, and arranging connection of your solar meter. We’ll also take care of the solar rebate paperwork for you.

Reputation is everything

More than 90% of Dunne Solar’s business comes from referrals – happy customers who were so satisfied with the service provided, they happily referred us to their friends and family. Very few solar companies can boast that sort of track record.

Dunne Solar is one of only a handful of companies in NSW selected as a Preferred Partner by SunPower, manufacturer of the highest efficiency, highest reliability solar panels available today.



Paul Dunne and his team are fully accredited with the Clean Energy Council in Grid connect systems, hybrid, and off grid systems (SPS).



Dunne Solar has public Liability of $10mil and holds all relevant and up to date industry licences, accreditation’s, and safety training to continually provide industry best practice installations.
