Business or Commercial finance

As the price of electricity supply and other energy forms continues to soar, business owners across Australia are facing massively increased costs. Solar power gives the business owner the opportunity to take control over their energy costs and manage their budget more effectively. The finance repayments may also be tax deductible to the business.

Commercial finance for solar systems is very specialised and traditional major banks and lenders are not generally interested in financing solar power, or accepting solar equipment as collateral.

At Solar & Energy finance they have researched extensively and they now have agreements with funders that will finance solar systems.

Product Features

100% no deposit commercial finance
Up to 7-year term (6 & 7 year terms >$35k and full doc only)
Fast approvals
Great rates
We can fund anywhere in Australia
Solar – Air – Storage – Refrigeration – we can finance anything!

Here are some of our commercial finance options; once they have the opportunity to discuss your circumstances they can recommend the best option for you. Solar & Energy finance recommends that you discuss the option with your accountant, to find the one most relevant to your needs.

Once you have spoken to a member of the Edwards Solar Plus team and we have assessed your property to advise on the size of solar system most optimum for your businesses needs and to gain the best possible return on investment. Then our team member will advise you of the pricing structure for the customized system for your property.  This will set the benchmark for how much finance you will need to borrow for the system.

Edwards Solar Plus are happy for you to contact Todd direct and pre-arrange your solar finance options or we can help you through the whole process. Once you have been advised on a system size and settled on the grade of system you wish to purchase then all that is left to do it get fast approval from Solar & Energy finance and we can take care of the rest.
