Our Story

Commodore Solar was founded in 2012 to offer domestic and industrial alternatives to expensive mains power, our focus is alternative energy systems.  We are proud of its commitment to ongoing technological innovation and development.

Managing director Boyd Dainton started in the electronics business in Shepparton in 1975, with his family history in the Goulburn Valley farming region dating back to the 1860s. Although Boyd comes from a science background, he has specialised in sourcing high-quality and cost-effective imports from the USA, Japan, Taiwan and China for more than 40 years, with his last company being publicly listed on the Singaporean Stock Exchange.

Originally, Commodore started off specialising in solar pumps however since we have expanded to: 

  • Off Grid Solar Systems – Thousands of Australian’s are choosing to have their own independent power source and with significant advancement’s in off grid technology Commodore is proud to be a quality distributor commercially and residentially
  • On Grid Solar Systems – Grid connect solar is popping up everywhere in Australia as a result of rising electricity costs and increasing feasibility of solar making it one of the best sources of ROI. Australian’s with grid connect are saving thousands in bills whilst also doing their bit for the environment by choosing a sustainable power source. 
  • Premium Diesel Generators – We have designed a range of generators specifically for Off Grid in order to provide automatic back up support for residents if their battery bank is getting low. With 2 wire auto start our premium diesel generators are a great choice for builders, other trades, farmers and Australian’s living off grid
  • Wind Tubrines – Premium European Bornay wind turbines 
  • Small solar and electrical accessories

Since beginning in 2005, Commodore has had the pleasure of servicing Australian’s, and supporting the people all over the world with community supported projects such as our Papua New Guinea project, which provided so much joy for this local Papua New Guinea community as they now had easy access to clean water, Commodore as an organisation was so pleased to see the positive impact an Australian owned and operated business could have on a global scale.
