Rebates can help you to reduce the upfront expense of installing energy and water saving measures in your home. Reducing energy and water consumption can also reduce the future running costs of your home or business.
Governments across Australia offer a range of rebates and other assistance to help you to live greener.
MASH (More Australian Solar Homes)
MASH is a Central Victorian community solar bulk-buy program that offers high quality systems and consolidates the collective buying power of residents to negotiate heavily discounted prices. It has been rolled out across the City of Greater Bendigo, Mount Alexander, Hepburn and Macedon Ranges shires. It is organised by the Hub Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation in Castlemaine.
In 2018, MASH received the Community Environment Award from Environment Victoria in recognition of the program facilitating solar panel installations for over 1,000 homes in central Victoria.
