Australian climate tech company UPowr is excited to announce its partnership with On by EnergyAustralia to offer eligible New South Wales homeowners a solar and battery system with no upfront costs – with the help of an interest-free loan from the New South Wales Government's Empowering Homes Program. 

It promises to make access to solar and batteries easy and affordable, says Mark Brownfield, EnergyAustralia's Chief Customer Officer. 

"When it comes to getting solar and batteries it can be hard to know where to start. It can be complicated and confusing – not to mention expensive. With our Solar Plus Plan we'll do the hard work for customers, taking care of the system selection and arranging for the installation," said Mark. 

"But the really exciting bit is that you'll pay nothing upfront. You pay off your solar and battery system over seven years*, simply by paying your energy bill. We'll make the loan repayments on your behalf from what you pay for your electricity. It's a game changer," he said. 

Customers agree, with Mark saying their trial of a similar no up-front cost solar and battery deal was keenly embraced. This encouraged EnergyAustralia to roll out this offer to people in select postcodes in the Endeavour and Essential Energy distribution areas. 

Customers taking up the offer get a high-quality system that's right for their home. It includes a 5.85kW tier one solar system, an inverter and 10.1kWh battery - valued at over $13,000. On by EnergyAustralia arranges for the installation. 

EnergyAustralia uses smart software to balance the customer's electricity supply from the grid, solar and battery. The battery will form part of EnergyAustralia's Virtual Power Plant – a network of batteries helping to support the grid.
