My professional career begins with a lawn and garden maintenance business in Sydney’s southwest. While working, I studied Arboriculture to work exclusively with trees.

Climbing trees for a living is pretty hard work, and after seven years in the game, I wanted something different.

I founded my first internet business GoTreeQuotes in 2015. I had a lot of knowledge to share on trees and I noticed a lot of the topics were not covered well or accurately. Plus, I was able to help readers make better decisions when hiring tree surgeons given my knowledge and experience.

Not long after founding GoTreeQuotes, I wanted to focus on another growing passion of mine, renewable and sustainable energy. Solar being one of the fastest-growing industries in green energy, it felt like a great place to start.

My older brother Leigh McInerney runs a successful solar installation company on the Central Coast NSW. I’ve used his inside industry knowledge and experience to help co-author everything on the site.

Building on my base knowledge of tree services to renewable and sustainable energy seems like a logical transition and one I’ve enjoyed.
