Solar Loans Can Finance Your Next Energy Move
What are solar loans?
Solar loans and green loans are unsecured or secured personal loans for Aussies looking to purchase solar panels, batteries or hot water systems for their home or business. Some lenders offer competitive solar panel loan rates for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
If you’re looking to save on your energy costs, and reduce your carbon footprint, then solar panels are an excellent option for every Aussie to make a difference. Solar is designed to cut down on your energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint; however, the upfront cost of solar panels can leave a sting. That’s why Jacaranda Finance offers unsecured and secured solar loans for those looking to invest in solar panels for their home.
What is a green loan for solar?
If you’re looking for a QLD solar loan, then you may also come across green loans for solar panels. Both solar loans and simple green loans for outdoor maintenance can be secured or unsecured personal loans. Jacaranda Finance offers solar panel loan rates for amounts from $300 to $10,000. The repayment period will depend on the amount you choose to borrow.
Is it worth installing solar?
As energy prices skyrocket, people are looking for alternative energy sources. However, many of us are still asking the question, is it worth it? So, here are the facts:
- Solar prices are the lowest they have ever been at about $5,500
- Panels generated on average around 20 kWh a day (averaged out across the year)
- Solar is cheaper to produce with electricity costing 52.54 cents per kWh to produce and solar only costing around 5 to 6 cents.
Many Aussies have made the switch to solar to reduce their energy bill. When you compare the cost of energy produced and usage, solar is worth it. However, you must also factor in the cost of replacing the panels. There are plenty of Aussie solar providers that can evaluate your energy usage to see if you’re home is ready for solar.

5 Ways you can make your home more sustainable
You’ll notice that slowly yet surely, people are becoming more eco-friendly. Whether it’s the plastic bag ban, increase in recycling, or composting, there’s always a way you can reduce your carbon footprint. If you’re considering a solar loan to help increase your home’s sustainability, you’re on your way to save money, energy and reduce your carbon footprint. There are many other small yet efficient ways you can increase your home’s sustainability and do the earth a favour. Here are 5 affordable ways you can make your home more sustainable:
- Energy-efficient light bulbs. Although energy-efficient light bulbs have been around for several years, not all home owners are aware of them. Not only are energy-efficient light bulbs just as effective as regular ones, but they tend to also save you money.
- Insolation. We’re lucky enough to live in a warm country like Australia, however, winters can definitely get cold enough for people to use their heaters. Improving your home insulation is a sustainable step to take that ensures a warm home during winter, while saving energy. Additionally, home insulation is a smart way to help you save money.
- Water-based paint. If you’re about to renovate your home or simply repaint a room, consider using water-based paint. This type of paint contains natural pigments that are just as aesthetically pleasing and efficient as regular oil paint, but much more eco-friendly.
- Go green when you clean. One of the smallest yet efficient ways to reduce your carbon footprint and turn your home eco-friendly is by using sustainable cleaning products. Many detergents and cleaners sold at supermarkets tend to do more harm than good to the environment. There are affordable and easy substitutes to some of the most used cleaning products such as bleach and detergent. Consider switching to bicarbonate soda, vinegar and lemon juice. Those substitutes work just as well in disinfecting surfaces and killing germs while turning your home eco-friendly.
- Compost. Composting has recently become a more common method in maintaining your home’s sustainability. The only cost you’ll have to worry about is just purchasing the compost bin, which wouldn’t exceed $30 on average. From there you’ll be able to scrape any leftovers or vegetable scraps and turn them into compost to use in your garden.
