This program is organised by the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance, a not-for-profit organisation that works with councils to encourage the uptake of renewable energy. The CVGA runs community solar bulk-buys across Victoria including MASH (More Australian Solar Homes).

The program is supported by Brimbank City Council.

This is a community project supported by Brimbank City Council. It provides residents and businesses with a reliable, high quality choice of solar panels and battery systems for their home or business. The program will also donate free solar to community groups in Brimbank.

The main benefits of this program are:

Trusted quality – The solar retailer and installer selected for this program has been chosen through a competitive tendering process. This means you will be getting a high quality system, installed without hassle, backed by solid warranties.

Good value – Prices for systems through this program represent value for money. With the performance guarantee there’s the peace of mind of knowing that your system will deliver the promised power or it will be fixed at no cost to you.

Community Q&A workshops – These sessions are designed to provide you with the information to decide whether getting a system installed is going to be right for you. They’re a great opportunity to get answers to all your solar and battery questions.

No hard sell – We don’t do cold calls or door knocking. Our approach is to provide you with the information you need. We leave it to you to contact us if you want to go ahead.

Free solar for your community – For every solar system installed through this program, we’ll donate one per cent of the system’s value to a community organization in the City of Brimbank. Up to six free solar systems will be donated to community groups through the Brimbank Community Solar Program.
