In late 2017, following a detailed tender process, a panel of the three best solar PV suppliers in the Australian market were selected.  These suppliers have been thoroughly vetted and components assessed for quality (such as the Australian standards set by the Alternative Technology Association).

In addition to a range of other benefits, the package secured and currently offered to the not-for-profit sector for a limited time includes:

  • Expert advice: An expert team in solar analysis and installation will work on your behalf to review your portfolio, provide a detailed analysis, and source and assess multiple quotes from the selected Big Solar Switch provider panel.
  • Guaranteed discounts: The Big Solar Switch has secured guaranteed discounts on both the solar system components as well as the labour costs.
  • Extended warranties: The Big Solar Switch has secured extended warranties on solar systems purchased to ensure peace of mind (in the long term) for participating organisations.
  • Exclusive discounted finance: For organisations needing finance, discounted rates (for the specific purpose of solar installation) are available in addition to other specific finance options.


This offer is limited both in time and quantity. Community Buying Group is responsible for working with the sector to ensure a fair and equitable opportunity for all organisations to access this offer. Register via the button above or visit the Big Solar Switch website to find out more!
