The Hub Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation based in Castlemaine, Central Victoria. In our own small way we want to help tackle climate change, locally. Our biggest project was MASH (Mount Alexander Solar Homes Project), a solar panels bulk-buy offer for people who wanted to reduce their electricity bills and cut their CO2 emissions. Over 900 systems were installed  in four years, up to April 2018.  Because of other demanding activities, this project was passed over to the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance which is now running it very successfully.
