Invest in solar with $0 upfront cost, for real.

The average Australian household’s solar needs are met by installing a 5kW system.

With the current government rebate coming in at [maxrebates] (for a 6.6kW system)*, your total investment will be in the $4,000 – $8,000 range**.

With an average payback period of 3.2*** years, that’s a Return on Investment [ROI] of 31.4%. And after that 3.2 years is over, not only has the system paid for itself, but you’ll continue to save $1,568*** a year on your electricity bill.

Yup, that all sounds fantastic right, but there’s still the matter of paying up to $8,000.

Here are some options readily available:

  • Line of credit/Mortgage redrawAn extremely popular option with Australians who have enough equity in their home, is to request a line of credit or mortgage redraw.

  • Credit CardWe know that some of you see credit cards as a four-letter word, but for the rest of you, using a credit card for a large purchase [or in this case, investment], might prove to be the easiest option to fast-track your solar investment.
  • FamilyDepending on your family’s financial situation and your current relationship, a family member could be the financial conduit to facilitating your solar investment.
