About the MASH Bulk-buy
The MASH Bulk-Buy is a community initiative supported by Pyrenees Shire Council to make it easier for households and businesses to go solar and add battery storage.
Round 5 of the bulk-buy started in April 2020 with Specialized Solar as its supplier, high quality solar and battery systems and great prices.
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 Pyrenees Shire.
So spread the word, as the more solar that’s installed in the Pyrenees 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.
- February 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm at Beeripmo Development Centre

Supported by Pyrenees Shire Council
Council is keen to promote the uptake of solar for homes and businesses in our Shire as it’s a clean source of sustainable energy and can help reduce electricity bills. We have become partners of the MASH community solar bulk-buy, a successful program run by the not-for-profit Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance. We encourage anyone looking to get solar panels or install battery storage to take a look at what they offer. There’s also a bonus for our community as the more people who purchase through MASH in our Shire, the more is raised by the bulk-buy team for free solar for community groups and schools. It’s a win/win way of ‘going solar’ that’s good for you, good for the environment and good for our community.Jim Nolan, Chief Executive Officer, Pyrenees Shire Council
MASH Solar Bulk-Buy: Good for you. Good for your community. And a step towards a cleaner world for all of us.
