Our Mission

Our mission is to change the energy landscape across regional Australia by installing high-quality, cost-effective, compact utility-scale solar farms that sit comfortably side by side with agriculture while empowering rural and regional economic development and sustainability.

Meralli Solar is Australia’s leading provider of PEG frame solar solutions at the distribution level in rural and regional Australia. We see the opportunities associated with increased generation capacity in a decentralised grid, which shares energy within the local regional community, ultimately providing more affordable and reliable power than the current centralised system. We see that this approach will build economic capacity in our regional communities.
