Finance Solutions

SmartConsult can assist with arranging finance options via the major banks and established solar finance suppliers. We do this on a daily basis, so we know who offer the best rates for solar systems and other energy cost reduction solutions. You are welcome to compare with other finance quotes you receive, if you choose.

We will put you in touch directly with the most suitable finance provider who will guide you through the simple set up process.  Typically, our clients opt for an operational lease finance package over 5 or 7 years. This ‘rent to own’ option allows the monthly instalments to be fully tax deducted and the system is transferred to you when the term expires for no additional costs or hidden fees.

SmartConsult ensure that the energy cost reduction solution we provide you will be cashflow positive in the first year after finance costs. That means, your business will be better off investing in the future now and hedging costs rather than doing nothing and ignoring the risk that electricity costs pose to all small, medium and large businesses.
