Meet Duane

Remote Solar Solutions founder, Duane Russ, grew up on Gibb River Station in the heart of the Kimberley and has strong family ties throughout the region. His family is well-known and respected among Aboriginal people.

Duane’s passion for and knowledge of solar power systems stems from a combination of living “off grid” in his family home, and a learning process that has evolved over the last decade under the previous business name “Russ Mechanical Solutions”. Narrowing the focus into designing and installing renewable energy systems is reflected by rebranding into what is now Remote Solar Solutions.

Duane is a true Kimberley man, with exceptional knowledge of the region, intuitive problem solving skills and adaptability – assets that are relied upon heavily in such an unpredictable and often challenging geographical and isolated region.

Client Feedback

“Duane’s knowledge of the region and the ability to consider and troubleshoot the challenges faced with regard to limited access and extreme seasonal weather conditions, makes working with him and the team a smooth experience.”
Peter McCumstie – Dambimangari Aboriginal Corporation

“Remote Solar Solutions designed and installed an off-grid system for our family. We experienced a committed service with a business that was open to listening to our needs and providing accordingly. Follow up customer service provided to us, with regular system checks and generator servicing, is indicative of the care and pride Duane has in his company and his work.”
