Small Business Month: Murray- Solar Power Gladstone

Murray from Solar Power Gladstone thinks the best part about owning a small business is meeting people in the community.

“I love what I do, meeting real, down-to-earth people and listening to their backgrounds and getting involved in their plans,” said Murray.

Murray, who has been the owner of Solar Power Gladstone since 2016, and a member of the team since 2012, said that staying local is at the forefront of their small business.

“People need to buy local. I employ local people and support other companies with local sub-contractors. Everyone buys local, so the money stays local. We also sponsor local sports teams.

“It’s amazing that I get to meet so many people from the area, and I really enjoy educating people about the benefits of solar.”

Murray’s background is predominantly in sales, and after moving to Gladstone in 2012, he said he has no plans of going anywhere.

“I came to Gladstone in 2012, and I love it here. I buy local so the money stays here.”
