About the MASH Bulk-buy
The MASH Bulk-Buy is a community initiative – supported by Mount Alexander Shire Council and Mount Alexander Sustainability Group – to make it easier for households and businesses to go solar and add battery storage.
Going solar or adding battery storage can help you cut your electricity bills and become more self-sufficient. And with the MASH Bulk-Buy, you can feel good that you are also supporting your local community – as every installation counts towards more money going towards free solar for community groups and schools in the Mount Alexander Shire.
So spread the word, as the more solar that’s installed in the Mount Alexander Shire the better!
Join us at a Solar info meeting to find out if going solar is the right thing for you! In just 90 minutes, you will get a comprehensive overview of the MASH offer and the opportunity to put your questions to the MASH team and our solar installer.
