The rising cost of electricity can be considered a threat to all Australian homeowners. Solar power systems, solar hot water systems and other energy efficient solutions now give homeowners the unique opportunity to take control of their energy costs. Going solar can provide both environmental and financial benefits. It could potentially reduce your electric bill, increase the value of your property and protect you against soaring energy costs. Not only that, but you can reduce your carbon footprint by installing a solar system, too. Win-win, right?
Solar systems provide remarkable benefits and can prove to be economical over the long haul, which is why they are in such high demand right now. Unfortunately, these systems can come with a hefty price tag. While some consumers can afford to pay for solar solutions upfront, many people don’t have enough cash on hand to finance a solar power system out of pocket. You may be reluctant to harness the power of the sun because you don’t have the cash in your account to pay for it. The good news is – our green loans can put solar solutions within your reach.
What are green loans?
At Nifty, we realize that not everyone can pay for solar panels and solar hot water systems out of pocket. That is why we offer green loans to help consumers finance energy efficient solutions. You can get a loan for up to $5,000. Go green with Nifty!

You may even reach a fortunate position where the savings from your solar power system outweigh your loan payments. Now, that’s what we call Nifty!
Where can I get green loans for solar?
Solar panels harness the power of the sun to reduce energy bills. They are useful where the sun shines. A typical solar system lasts at least 25 years. Unfortunately, despite technological advancements in the sector, solar panels are still expensive. The cost of solar panels in Australia can exceed $13,000, which is why many consumers can’t pay for it out of pocket.

Our green loans for solar panels can help you avoid the steep costs upfront while giving you the ownership of your solar system. You can purchase the solar panel system and pay for it over time.
