We’ve done the legwork so you don’t have to!
The Hepburn Solar Bulk-Buy offers discounted prices* for high quality solar and home battery systems. Due to our track record, we’ve been able to negotiate competitive prices with Energy Matters, the solar company we’ve appointed for this bulk-buy. And because we’re a not-for-profit, we can pass the bulk of these discounts onto you! (Note, a small amount from each sale goes back to the Hub Foundation so that we can continue to organise community solar bulk-buys).
Hot news: A higher feed-in-tariff of 29c/kWh (for peak times) has been proposed by the Victorian energy and pricing regulatory. Learn more.

A payback of just over 5 years*** on a 5kW system!
With electricity prices rising and solar prices falling, solar can make good financial sense for many households. In a nutshell, the more solar power you can use in your home, the more you’ll save. It’s that simple!
***For example, you could save around $1,495 off your annual electricity bill with a 5.13kW system assuming that you use 75% of the solar power produced by the system in your home. If you use 50% of the solar power, the savings would be around $1,257 per year. This equates to a simple payback of just under 5 years on a 5.13kW MASH Standard System costing $6,150.
Pricing: the ‘not-so-fine print’
*Prices are indicative for standard installations and include GST. Prices are for all elements of the solar PV system including installation. Tailored quotes are provided to each household upon request. Prices are subject to change without notice.
**This is the approximate amount you might expect to save on your electricity bill in the first year of going solar. The lower figure assumes that 50% of the solar produced by your PV system is used in your home, with the rest exported to the grid at a feed-in tariff of 11.3c/kWh (the current minimum feed-in tariff in Vic). The higher figure is based on 75% of the solar produced by your PV system being used in your home. The savings are based on the assumption that solar power used in your home is saving you from buying electricity from your retailer at 25c/kWh.
