Family Owned & Hands-on

Roo's Electrical is a family-owned electrical contracting company that has been in business since 1991.

Roo’s Electrical original owner Howard Wittwer holds the nationally recognised solar design and installation Clean Energy Council accreditation, has over 40 years of experience in the electrical industry, and 20 of those years were served in the Air Force. In fact, Howard was nicknamed “Roo” while serving in the military – it seems he couldn’t march in time and had to do a little skip every third step to keep pace, so he was nick-named “Roo,” as in kangaroo! The name stuck and has served our business (and our owner) well.

Roo’s Electrical is now in the very capable hands of Howard’s son, Peter, a qualified electrician who spent six years serving the Australian Air Force as an Avionics Technician. Peter also holds the nationally recognised solar design and installation Clean Energy Council accreditation and proudly works with his dedicated team of electricians to provide electrical and solar services to residential, agricultural, commercial and industrial customers in the Gawler and Barossa regions.

    To ensure we meet our customer service focus AND green ethos, we only use quality products with lengthy warranties to protect your pocket and our planet. With product warranties of up to 25 years on solar equipment, 15 years longer than the standard, you will have peace of mind that you won’t be caught out having to replace your panels as soon as the buy back period ends.


    With Roos Electrical, If you choose green, you get green. It may sound obvious, but it’s not always the case. Inferior products, even those regarded as environmentally friendly, that are faulty or fail, often before standard warranties end, continue to put pressure on the planet due to the need for disposal and replacement.
