The Mallee Sun Solar Bulk Buy aims to make it easier for households and businesses to ‘go solar’ – and add battery storage – with an option they can trust.
Supported by Swan Hill Rural City Council
Mallee Sun Solar Bulk Buy is a partnership between Swan Hill Rural City Council and the More Australian Solar Homes (MASH) community solar bulk-buy. MASH is delivered by the not-for-profit organisation, the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance, which supports councils across central and north western Victoria.
Track record of success
MASH started five years ago with the aim of installing 50 solar rooftops on homes in Castlemaine. Today, there are more than 1,500 MASH solar homes in the Mount Alexander, Hepburn, Bendigo and Macedon Ranges council areas.
High quality solar systems at competitive prices
Backed by solid warranties and installed according to best practice industry standards by a Clean Energy Council Accredited solar retailer, the systems provide good value, with competitive prices negotiated as part of the bulk buy. The MASH team carefully evaluates the companies they work with to ensure residents can trust the quality and value of the systems being offered.
Community bonus – up to $20,000 in free solar
Community groups stand to benefit too – the program will donate up to $20,000 in solar grants to eligible organisations. More information on this grant program will be released in coming months as the bulk buy program gets underway.
Local jobs for local solar installers
The program will also work closely with local installers to promote local job opportunities. If you want to get involved in Mallee Sun Solar Bulk Buy as a sub-contractor, please get in touch with us by calling 0487 336 603.
