How to Pay for Solar

It may sound complex. But solar is simpler than you think.

At UNIfied Energy Services, we aim to take the complexity out of the solar process to make it easy to understand, quick and affordable, for your family.


Congrats! You’ve made the decision to go solar. How are you going to pay for it?

First up, let’s kick off with some really great news:

The Federal and State government offers homeowners who install solar panels generous incentives to do so.  Click here to find out which program you may be eligible for.

Now, on to your options for funding your home solar project.

We have to state the obvious: If you plan to stay in your home for a while and have the means to pay for your solar system with cash, doing so will bring you the quickest return on investment. You’ll begin to enjoy energy savings and lower power bills from the get-go – and as soon as they add up to cover the cost of the investment, you’ll go on to reap the benefits of likely decades of nothing-but-net utility savings.

If, like most of us, you’re not quite able to do that, no problem. You could consider a solar loan.

Here’s a quick overview:

Solar loans are similar to most other home improvement loans used to complete upgrades or renovations, like remodelling your kitchen or bathroom. However, there’s one major financial benefit that solar loans have over traditional home equity-type loans: with a solar panel loan, you’re purchasing an asset that also generates financial value. Over the lifetime of your solar system, you’ll save anywhere from 40 to 70 percent on electricity costs (versus doing nada) – which kind of makes you want to ask your kitchen reno, “What have you done for me lately?”

These loans can be obtained from a variety of sources, including banks and solar loan specialists like Plenti. Ask us about financing your solar investment.

Financing is one of the most involved parts of the home solar process. But with our help and once it’s sorted, you’re on the home straight to brighter days!
