Is your organisation working from sun up until sun down to make a difference in WA? It might be time to put the sun to work for you - so you can save money on your electricity bill and invest these savings back in to your community.

That's why we’re helping community groups to discover new ways to save energy – and up to six selected organisations will have a SolarReturn system supplied and installed by us for free. It’s an initiative called our Synergy Community Solar Fund.

How our Synergy Community Solar Fund works


Apply online before 25 May 2018 if your organisation is eligible and could benefit from a SolarReturn solar energy system.


If you’re eligible and you apply, you’ll receive a free one-hour energy audit and energy-saving recommendations.

Solar shortlist

We’ll work out the best sized system for each of our finalists, regardless of whether they own or rent their premises.


Our panel of judges will consider the shortlisted applicants and determine the winners.


Winners will be announced from early June and the SolarReturn systems will be installed by December 2018.

Solar at work for community groups

Thommo's Community Garden gives seasonal fruit and vegetables, freshly-laid free range eggs and a lot more to the community in Bunbury. People have the chance to dig in and learn new skills, meet new friends and enjoy a sense of belonging.

In 2016, we gave a Synergy SolarReturn system to Thommo’s Garden, a community garden in Bunbury. Discover how solar power has made an impact to the people (and plants) involved in this great community program.
