Financing your Solar System

Choose the smartest way to pay.

A solar panel installation currently generates a tax-free, reliable return that is a higher than the interest you will receive by putting your money in the bank.

We ensure that as well as being a good investment, your system is designed correctly for what’s most important for you. Sometimes a system that generates the most amount of power or gives you most independence from the grid may suit your situation best.

There are several ways to finance your solar installation, Dunedin Solar can help you choose the right solar finance option by providing a detailed analysis of your potential return on on investment, highlighting exactly how and when you can expect to break even, and start making profit from your solar system.

Your own savings

Using your savings offers the best rate of return. Solar power is a bankable and reliable energy source.

The cost of energy is rising, so your return on investment will only improve as prices increase.

A typical solar instillation will provide at least a 10% return on investment.

Obviously you should account for the ‘opportunity cost’ of using your savings, but we struggle to find a better option.
