Astrid Herber (Chairperson)
Astrid was offered a ride on ‘the solar-coaster’ over a decade ago & has been strapped in ever since. Commencing in a sales role, though harbouring an irritatingly persistent desire to understand how things work, she completed her CEC Grid-connect Design accreditation studies in 2013.
Astrid has since amassed experience designing hundreds of Solar PV systems, residential & commercial, around the country, while living in SA, NSW & VIC. A ‘CEC Design & Installation Awards’ finalist, awarded a ‘Judges Honourable Mention’ (2017).
Committed to ‘lifelong learning’, Astrid is currently studying a Master of Engineering (Sustainable Energy) with RMIT, while working full time as Operations Manager for Symmetry Solar.
Though specialised in Solar PV, her experience includes various energy efficiency solutions, LED, PFC, HVAC, insulation, embedded networks.
Often employment by small businesses, Astrid has juggled varied responsibilities concurrently, functioning as PM, BDM, Channel Manager, Data Analyst, System Designer, Tender Manager, Sales Manager, Division Manager, Operations Manager, even physical installation of commercial solar.
