Refinancing? Add solar for as little as $5 per week

With the RBA lifting cash rates again in April catching many off guard, there’s never been a bigger uptake in mortgage holders seeking refinancing.

What few realise is that refinancing is a key opportunity to absorb the cost of getting solar onto your roof, and power bills out of your life. 

How can I save more by getting solar during a refinance?

The point of a refinance is to save money - but many homeowners don’t realise they could be saving even more on their refinance with the inclusion of a solar system.

When you refinance, banks are vying to offer you the most competitive interest rates so that they can acquire your home loan rights. Taking advantage of this low interest rate provides a perfect opportunity to include a big ticket item like a solar system. The bank pays for it, and then you pay it off with very low interest - significantly lower than personal loans. For most of our customers, this is proving to amount to as low as an added $5 to $15 per week on their mortgage repayments.


In the meantime, you’ll immediately see the benefits of:


  • $0 electricity bills for at least 5 years
  • Added resale value 
  • Saving $1000s in electricity bills across the system’s lifetime
  • Setting your home up for electrification - to optionally ditch your gas and petrol bills in the future
  • Ditching your carbon footprint


Reposit No Bill was designed as a cost of living solution that gets you closer to your retirement goals, sooner. We’re always looking for opportunities for our users to get away from rising cost of living pressures, and refinancing is a golden opportunity if you’re in the market.

Other benefits to getting solar through refinancing:


  • You may be able to make use of some of your home’s equity to slash the cost of your solar system even further. Talk to your broker to understand how much useable equity you have available (it’s usually around 80% of your property value, minus the balance you still owe to the bank). 


  • You’re spending the bank’s money, and paying off installments instead of taking a large hit to your cash flow or savings.


  • Redraw options open even more flexibility for paying the bank back sooner or later, while still having access to the money you paid for your solar system.


For most users this proves an investment with immediate cash positivity, as repayments are often far less than the cost of an electricity bill. Such systems also add resale value to your property to absorb the cost further.
