Welcome to Bushlight



Bushlight was not awarded the contract to deliver maintenance to solar systems under the Remote Indigenous Energy Program in the first six months of 2014. From 1st January 2014 - June 30th 2014 homelands with problems with their solar systems should call the new service provider, Ingkerreke on 1800 266 464.


If you have any questions about the Remote Indigenous Energy Program you should contact your local Indigenous Coordination Centre.


Bushlight and CAT look forward to continuing to work with homelands on any other energy or infrastructure related issues.


Bushlight short film


Since 2002, Bushlight has worked with 130 Aboriginal communities across NT, QLD, and WA to improve access to reliable energy services and increase livelihood opportunities.


In late 2012 filmmaker Tim Parish put together a short film about Bushlight after travelling to Kabulwarnamyo in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory. Kabulwarnamyo sits on the vast Warddeken Indigenous Protected Area and is home to the award winning Warddeken Rangers. The Bushlight renewable energy system provides reliable, affordable power for the community's domestic activities as well as supporting the important work of the ranger program.


You can find out more about Bushlight and Kabulwarnamyo in this 10 minute film:
