How Does It Compare To Other Finance Options?
Here’s how the Green Loan would compare to other finance options if you were to borrow $10,000 to be repaid over 60 months.
|Credit Card||Mortgage (20-year term)|
|Interest Rate||6.9% p.a.||19.75% p.a. on purchases||Mortgage offset – 4.00% p.a.|
|Total Interest & fees||$2,745||$5,020||$4,543|
|Monthly repayments||$212||$250 (average)||$61|
|Comparison rate||7.94% p.a.||19.75% p.a. on purchases||4.00% p.a.|
High-interest rates from credit card fees could increase your overall payment greatly, in a short time. Over a 60-month loan term, you could be looking at an extra $3,000 of interest compared to a Green Loan.
You can borrow more against your home using low mortgage interest rates, however, the length of the loan could have you paying double of what your solar system would have cost you. Unless you plan to pay your mortgage off in a short period of 2-5 years.
$0 Upfront or Interest-Free Claims
Be wary of $0 Upfront or Interest-Free claims deals. While the initial no upfront payment and no interest sound great, these deals usually set the overall retail price for the solar system substantially higher than your standard solar system price. Therefore, you’ll be paying more in the long run.
