Ben Cole, Founder & Director

“My goal for NewGen Solar is to accelerate the uptake of sustainability products in our community for the benefit of the environment”


Having a flair for economics he undertook a Bachelor of Business course at Swinburne University.  A great communicator and excellent relationship builder, Ben enjoyed corporate success both in Australia and the UK.   Always of greater interest to Ben were environmental issues and the emerging technologies offering solutions.  In 2008 he decided to make his passion his profession and joined one of Australia’s leading environmental companies to become the solar hot water division manager and has never looked back.


When not working on solar projects or researching new technologies, Ben can be found smashing shuttles on the badminton court, chasing birdies on the golf course or his favourite - SCUBA diving with sharks in exotic places.
