What is the Interest Free Loans for Solar Batteries Program?

Bringing the Cost Savings of Solar Batteries to more QLD homes

The Interest-Free Loans for Solar & Solar Batteries program has been created for households that couldn’t normally afford the upfront cost of solar. The program has been rolled out as part of the Queensland Government’s Affordable Energy Plan, which is a commitment to making electricity more affordable.

Under the scheme loans of up to $10,000 can be repaid with zero interest over a loan period of up to 10 years.

Incredibly, for some households, this will make their solar installations cashflow positive from the second electricity bill forward ( the first bill will include additional costs for an electricity meter upgrade from their energy retailer )

The scheme is being administered by the Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority ( QRIDA ) who will give approval of solar loan applications within 15 days of receiving the correct paperwork

The Process of Getting a Grant / Loan for a Solar Battery

The process of applying and being approved for an interest free solar loan is simple enough, but it requires a fair bit of documentation.
