How much could you save with solar finance*?
While every business is different, we’ll work hard to find an efficient and cost-saving result for you. For example, a cold refrigeration business recently explored the cash flow impact of financing their 40kw Solar System (~$40k ex GST). Based on a 7-year fully-amortising loan, this business customer could potentially be as much as $408 better off per month [than if they had paid for the system upfront]. This is a great outcome for the business, as it allows the owners to have access to a Synergy solar system without a large upfront capital outlay.
