Residential Solar & Energy Finance

With soaring electricity bills and attractive Government incentives, the surge in popularity of Solar PV systems for households has been incredible.

Now with new battery storage technology in the marketplace, homeowners can even go completely “off the grid” and have total control over their energy consumption and costs. Just as Solar installations are a very technical and skilled area of expertise, so is Solar Finance. Here at Solar & Energy Finance we specialise in finance options for PV Solar and energy related products.

We hold accreditations with funders that are specialists in solar energy loans, whereas most major banks and lenders are not comfortable with solar financing and they prefer taking a mortgage over your house. At Solar & Energy Finance we offer unsecured solar loan options.

We also offer fast and genuine personal one-to-one service, you can call our office and chat to our team anytime without going through the frustrating layers of a bank call center overseas and then waiting 2 weeks for the bank to give you an answer to your loan application.

Solar & Energy Finance offers consumers a competitive, simple to understand and transparent solar loan solution designed to reduce your stress and suit your budget.

WARNING!! Be aware that so called “Interest Free” or “No Interest Ever” solar payment plans are not always what they appear to be. The solar installer/supplier must increase the true cost of your solar system quote by between 23% – 40% so that the installer/supplier can pay this as a “merchant fee” directly to the finance company upfront. So in reality you have paid all of the interest charges upfront. Remember the old saying, there is no such thing as a free lunch, and this is especially true in finance!

At Solar & Energy Finance we believe it is important that the customer is the one in control, so all our residential solar loans are Principal and Interest daily reducing loans that allow the customer to make regular payments (and any extra amounts) whenever they choose, thus the customer has complete control over the amount of interest they pay and the eventual loan term.

If you are still unsure which option suits you best, or have any questions at all, we encourage you to call our office where our friendly and experience staff can discuss your personal circumstances and recommend the best product for you.

Solar Home Equity Loan

If you prefer not to use our solar personal loan, or if you require a larger loan amount and want a lower interest rate, then we can also advise you on a strategy using the equity in your home.
