Green Frog Systems is excited to announce the appointment of four new staff members due to an incredible period of growth across Australia, and with our continued expansion into overseas markets including the USA, UK and NZ.

We would like to give a huge welcome to our new team members:

Andrew Nicholls, who has joined our Engineering team to assist with the development of our product range. Andrew has decades of technical and operational management experience in the Solar PV and electrical-electronics industries, to bring along a pragmatic and informed perspective to his key role – to ensure the innovative engineering ideas and systems design to our expanding range of solar LED lighting projects worldwide. He also combines his vast technical background in this industry, as a highly respected and informative lecturer of electrical engineering subjects at TAFESA institutions in South Australia.

Steven Zang, who has also joined our Engineering team focusing on inventory control, document checking, product repairs and supplier management. Steven has moved to Australia, following his role as an Electrical Engineer for a multi-national company in Singapore where he was involved in electrical circuit design, project management and product testing. Steven enjoys being able to work within the Solar industry in a fast-paced environment where he can learn new skills and technologies. He is eager to learn more about living and working in Australia and getting familiar with the community.

Lauren Myers, who has joined our Marketing team to work on all things Digital. Following the completion of her Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing, Lauren gained experience in the field at a South Australian Non-Profit, assisting with the management of multiple brands and their digital presence, before spending six months traveling the world to broaden her understanding of people and culture. After an educational experience overseas, she is excited to build a well-rounded and meaningful career in the digital space. Lauren hopes in her role to focus on how we can better communicate with customers meaningfully while helping to educate the larger community about important issues such as renewable energy.

Chris Gricks, who has most recently joined our Sales team to identify opportunities and further stimulate growth in new and existing business throughout SA, WA, VIC and Tas. Previously Chris was working as a Territory Manager in the medical industry, selling capital and consumable products to hospitals and day surgeries. Other previous roles include selling to the Allied Health Professionals and working as a Biomedical Engineer. Chris is enthusiastic about the opportunity to bring together his experience in sales and development, along with his engineering background in his new role.

ALGA NGA 2019 Canberra
Well that’s a wrap for the 2019 National General Assembly in Canberra.

Last Sunday the team arrived at Canberra greeted by a very chilly 3° morning to set up the Green Frog stand for our second year at the conference.

There was a great response from the audience as our Managing Director David Wilson explained to the National General Assembly how to ‘Take Smart Cities Off the Grid’ and encouraged Councils to consider the benefits of solar power when investing in vital infrastructure such as public lighting.

The team were thrilled with the interest shown towards some of the upcoming technology and having the opportunity to chat with Mayors and Councillors from 534 Local Government Associations (LGA) across Australia about their expanding infrastructure needs as communities continue to grow.

It is critical that newly built infrastructure is future focused, which is why we continue to develop solar powered products that outperform traditional grid-reliant lighting.

We hope to see you again next year!

Lighting increases safety at rest areas, not only aiding the personal safety and security of users but also by improving visibility from the road. Mains connected lighting can be costly to install and is dependent on access to services but in remote areas such a country and regional roads, solar lighting is generally more appropriate.

Battery Recycling Scheme

By Blog, Latest News

Green Frog Systems are an environmentally responsible business in line with our focus on light and energy storage solutions operating on renewable energy. To further enhance the communities’ efforts on reducing unnecessary landfill, we are proud to be launching our “battery take back scheme” in what we believe is a first of this kind for an Australian solar lighting manufacturer.

battery recycling scheme

Each year, a staggering 8,000 tonnes of battery waste ends up in landfill, risking our wildlife and the broader environment.

That’s why Green Frog Systems offers a ‘back to base battery return scheme’ for those batteries distributed with our range of solar powered street lights and solar energy storage systems.

By returning used batteries from any of our solar street lighting kits back to Green Frog Systems, or any of the other ABRI members (Australian Battery Recycling Initiative), you will be doing your part to reduce the thousands of tonnes of batteries that end up in landfill each and every year.

Green Frog Systems ‘back to base battery return scheme’ demonstrates our leadership and commitment to sustainable resource use, climate change mitigation, protection of biodiversity and ecosystems. This also complies with our international quality accreditation ISO 14001:2015 and PAS 99:2012.

How does the battery recycling scheme work?


Either drop your used batteries from our GFS-200, GFS-400 Solar Street Lights or any one of our GFS-200/400/600 solar energy storage systems back to Green Frog Systems Head Office at 51 Langford St. Pooraka, South Australia 5095 [GET DIRECTIONS] or, for other locations across Australia contact one of the other ABRI members listed below.

The ABRI or Australian Battery Recycling Initiative is a not-for-profit association established in 2008 to promote responsible environmental management of batteries at end of life.

ABRI members provide a collection and recycling service for used automotive and other lead acid batteries. Contact the company or check their web site for details.

If you are a commercial business or if you have a large number of batteries, you can arrange for collection and recycling of used batteries through the following ABRI members (with a fee for service).

Owned by the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ), Local Buy is the LGAQ’s procurement service, which allows Councils to access a range of goods and services through a quotation, rather than tender process.

Local Buy arrangements are compliant with the Local Government Regulation 2012 and Local Government Act 2009. This provides Local Government entities with the assurance that suppliers have been vetted and meet requirements based on a comprehensive tender, evaluation and approval process. In addition, purchasers do not need to complete a Request for Tender (RFT) separately before engaging your services.

A prequalified panel manages the procurement compliance process on behalf of all Government agencies. This produces shortened procurement timeframes and streamlines interactions between business and Local Government.

Of benefit, QLD and SA Local Government can therefore purchase solar powered lights through Local Buy contracts, eliminating the need to go to tender or obtain multiple quotes.
