North Coast Power & Water (NCPW) History
1990; North Coast Power & Water's history started as the second of four BP Solar Australia company owned retail outlets. A network of solar distributors was set up between Newcastle and Cairns that were supplied by BP Solar Coffs Harbour.
1991; There wasn’t enough business in solar alone at that time so the decision was made to diversify the product range and become a major supplier of pumping and irrigation equipment on the North Coast.
1992; BP Solar expanded the range of products to include: solar hot water, poly water tanks, irrigation, domestic water filtration, wood fired heaters & stoves, lawn mowers, chainsaws and electric fences.
1995; A competition was run to come up with a trading name that better reflected the range of products sold and the area covered by BP Solar Coffs Harbour. As a result of this the name of North Coast Power & Water was registered in December 1995.
1999; BP Solar, as part of the changes within BP, due to the merger with Amoco in 1998 decided to sell their 4 company owned retail outlets. These outlets were base in Coffs Harbour, Dubbo, Rockhampton and Darwin.
2000; North Coast Power & Water was purchased by the Graetz Family in July 2000. They had visited the Coffs Harbour region previously on an extended holiday and loved the area, especially the location, climate and scenery. Ashley, the Managing Director, was previously working as the Sales Manager for the Darwin, BP Solar shop.
