I am writing in support of Mr Shane Kennedy of DS Energy and am pleased to offer this reference based on my personal and professional relationship with Shane since 2016.
I have had the pleasure of working with Shane on a number of commercial and industrial electrical and renewable energy projects over the past 3 years.
Shane is one of the best electrical contractors that I have worked with throughout my 17 year electrical career. He is a confident and reliable electrician, electrical contractor and business manager who is willing to work collaboratively with the project team. He follows designs and specifications without shortcuts, but also constructively offers alternative solutions or cost efficiencies without compromising quality, safety, or schedule.
He has the impressive ability to deliver cost effective and time efficient services without compromising on quality or safety. Shane has the ability to bring together a construction team of qualified tradespersons, trade assistants and labourers and ensure that all personnel work effectively together to achieve the project goals.
Two of the premier projects where I have worked with Shane and his team are noted as follows:
- Australian Stockmans Hall of Fame – 100 kW Solar PV
- Brisbane Markets Stage 2 Solar Project – 1.6 MW Solar PV
My involvement with Shane started when I operated my own electrical engineering consulting business Tranter Engineering, continued when this business merged with FortEng Consulting Engineers and I continue to have a close relationship with Shane in my current role with juwi Renewable Energy in the development and EPC of utility scale solar, wind and hybrid projects.
I do not hesitate to recommend Shane and his team for any large scale commercial, industrial, or utility electrical construction projects and I look forward to continuing to work with him. Please feel free to contact me should you wish to discuss this matter further.Jeremy Tranter

The Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage has engaged the services of DS Energy for planning, installation and maintenance of a large solar array system for our facility.
The quality of communication, installation work and in particular the strict adherence to the OH&S policies was first class. The program was funded through a Federal Government program and as such the requirements of the project required a company that could deliver the project brief inline with strict Federal Government Grant requirements. DS Energy delivered the project on time and on budget and continues to this day, to communicate with the organization to ensure all systems are operating as specified.
The Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage has no hesitation in recommending the services of DS Energy.Lloyd Mills
Chief Executive Officer
Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage Centre
The Qantas Founders Museum embarked on a significant solar array project with a 100KW system installed on the roof of the museum’s main building.
I could not more highly recommend the services and professionalism of DS right from the initial engagement and inception of our project through to the continued relationship we have some four years later. I am always impressed with companies such as this that have a unique after care relationship with their customers. Among many aspects of the project their communication with us through all stages of the project and their onsite due diligence and safety was particularly impressive.
This relationship has resulted in us approaching DS to again tender for another significant renewable energy project that we want to deliver later this year early 2019.
I have no doubt that we will favour working with DS into the futureTony Martin
