Government announces solar incentive
THE QUEENSLAND Government has announced a brand-new incentive to help homeowners take back control of their electricity bills and combat the rising cost of energy. If you’re a homeowner, then now really is the best time to make the switch to solar energy with the government providing interest free loans of $4,500 to be paid back over 7 years.
SAE Group have brought to market a compelling offer specially designed for QLD homeowners looking to take advantage of this government initiative, making it even easier for you to make the switch. For only $4,500 you could enjoy the benefits of a 5.5kW solar bundle, comprising of 20 x 275-watt Luxen panels and a 5kW X1 Boost Solax inverter. This is a highly efficient system designed to drastically reduce your household electricity bills for 25+ years. How much could you save?
Let’s start with the amount you would have to repay each month. With a loan of $4,500 being paid back over a 7-year period, that’s only an estimated monthly repayment of $54, or $643 annually*. Compare this with the average savings of $130^ a month, or $1560 a year, that the 5.5kW system installed by SAE Group should create for your home. That’s a saving of $76 each and every month from the get go, or $912 a year. What about over the 7-year period? You could save $6,384 PLUS the value a solar system adds to your property which you will own outright after the finance period.
Are you eligible?
An interest free loan combined with this incredible offer from SAE Group make it obvious why homeowners are already acting fast to secure their loan before the fund is exhausted. However, to be eligible you must be a QLD homeowner, receive Family Tax Benefit Part B, and have had a power bill of more than $1,000 over the past 6 months ($500 or more per bill)*. If you are eligible, then you’ll have to purchase the system from a Clean Energy Council ‘Approved Solar Retailer’ such as SAE Group to ensure installations are only through trusted retailers.
