Commercial solar finance and funding options

As commercial solar specialists, Chase Renewables can help you find the right finance option for your installation and ensure you access all available government rebates.

Your finance and funding options

With low interest rates and terms of up to 7 years, our finance plans make solar accessible to most businesses.

Features include:
– $0 deposit.
– Fast and easy approval process.
– Repayments are fixed for the term of the loan. Chattel mortgages provide you with ownership from day one and the added benefits of:
– Claiming the total GST paid on the system
– Instant asset write off of the full amount (up until 30 June 2023)

Operating leases give you the advantage of:

– Tax deductible repayments
– An average return on investment of three to four years.

Many local councils offer Environmental Upgrade Finance to businesses upgrading their buildings to make their operations more energy efficient, sustainable and climate resilient. Financial institutions provide the funding for these loans, however, the loan is repaid by the property owner through their council rates.
Environment Upgrade Finance offers many benefits, including:

– Ownership from day one
– Instant asset tax write-off for full amount.
– Loan terms of up to 20 years, with fixed, quarterly payments.
– Loans are fully transferable upon the sale of the property.
– No Director Guarantee (unsecured loan).
– Costs can be shared with tenants without renegotiating leases.
– Fast and easy approval process.

A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a long-term electricity supply agreement between you and a power producer (PPA provider).

The agreement gives the PPA provider permission to install a solar system at your business premises to generate electricity. The PPA provider then bills you for the electricity generated. This, combined with a significantly lower bill from your current energy retailer for what you draw from the grid, results in significant overall savings.

The PPA provider is responsible installation and ongoing maintenance of the solar system, for the life of the contract, allowing your business to lock in cheap energy rates without any capital investment or ongoing maintenance costs. The benefits of a Power Purchase Agreement include the following:

– Zero capital outlay. Our PPA provider installs the solar system at your premises at no cost to you.

– No ongoing maintenance costs.

– Immediate savings on your electricity bill and reduced overall energy costs as you draw less from the grid and more from the sun.

– Fast and easy approval process.

Most of. our customers find that their overall energy costs are reduced even when financing their commercial solar system, as the energy cost savings are so significant that they’re still ahead – even after making the finance repayments.

Experienced and trusted by Victorian businesses

Over the last decade, Chase Renewables has helped dozens of Australian businesses, who both lease and own their premises, to take advantage of the benefits of commercial solar – including large-scale wineries, manufacturing businesses, hospitality venues, retail and wholesalers and general businesses.

Chase Renewables installed our commercial solar system in mid-2020. After a long period reviewing different solar companies, we were very happy that we worked with Chase. All communication and dealings were incredibly professional. We are relieved and excited to be up and running with solar.

Chase Renewables were fantastic! So professional and knowledgeable. We were very happy with the results.

With honesty, competitive pricing and friendly, professional service, Chase was the clear winner in our review of six providers. The whole process, from start to finish, was an absolute pleasure. They kept us informed along the way, and their installation team did a sterling job! We are so happy with the results!

DROMANA ESTATE WINERY

I’d been considering solar for many years but always said no when approached by various companies. It was only after talking with Chase Renewables that I decided to proceed. They explained things really well and addressed all my concerns. It’s refreshing to work with someone who really takes the time to explain things well.
