About Grow Energy

After being involved in the battery industry for over 30 years, setting up battery wholesale and retail outlets across Australia, Scott Davies and his brothers turned their focus to battery services for motoring clubs such as RACV, NRMA and AAA. It worked, the company going global and the Davies brothers becoming world experts on batteries. In recent years, they've distributed and installed nearly two million units each year.

After conquering the battery industry, Scott turned his focus to setting up Eco Retreats helping companies and individual find more sustainable solutions. Hummingbird Eco Retreat on the Mornington Peninsula operated for 7 years and is currently closed for major renovation with new owners.

As his passion turned to environment and sustainability, renewable energy became the number one focus for homes and business to reduce carbon footprint and cost efficent. Batteries have emerged as the vital part to our changing world. The humble battery is the most expensive item for solar installation, electric vehicle and electric bikes. These 3 areas all now use lithium ion batteries. Our business model focuses on these 3 areas as we become Victoria's leader in batteries for solar, deep cycle AGM batteries, electric vehicle charging systems and electric bike batteries.

Filling a Void in the Market

With the advancement of battery technologies playing a vital role in the renewable energy mix, Scott saw a void in the market. Most renewable energy solutions — such as solar power with battery storage — were being sold through websites, telemarketing or door-to-door sales.

Grow Energy was born, a Victorian-owned company focused on South East Melbourne and Mornington Peninsula. We provide a showroom in Cheltenham where people can gather information to decide the best renewable energy solution for them — without the added selling pressure.

People still want to see the solar system before they buy and understand choices with solar and batteries. Solar cells or battery cells produce, transfer or store energy. As solar companies try to reduce cost the showroom and local service goes out of fashion. Our view is people if investing $10,000 still want to see the product and know they can walk back in and get service rather than dealing with someone on the other end of the phone.

Our Showroom

How we produce and use energy as a community is set to change dramatically in the coming years. Our showroom exists to help individuals and businesses through this major transition.

We provide help and advice with all aspects of renewable energy: its production, through solar panels; its storage, through batteries; its usage, including electric vehicle charging equipment and e-bikes; and monitoring, through monitoring systems that help you track and understand your power usage.

Stocking large range of automotive and deep cycle AGM batteries people can come down and have a battery installed or pick up battery for boat or caravan.

You can also book appointment and we will design your solar system and walk you through design

Why Grow Energy

The name Grow Energy was inspired by that feeling you get when eating the veggies you've grown yourself, or when giving them to a neighbour. Nothing beats the taste of a home-grown tomato with fresh basil leaves, or the feeling of coming home on a summer's day and turning on the air conditioner guilt free, knowing you produced the energy that's keeping you and your family cool.

Its the same reason people choose Grow Energy. We are local and focusing on renewable energy for Victoria. If we focus locally we can create this community spirit. Focusing locally means we have to select the right product both value and quality.
