Bushlight is a division of CAT that builds and maintains renewable energy systems in remote communities. These are generally standalone solar (or solar diesel hybrid) electricity systems. They have a complex but user-friendly interface to help demand management and enable efficient use of available power. As of 2011, 120 systems have been installed across northern Australia, and a version is being tested in India.
