Boost your Commercial Solar Sales with SAF’s Flexi VEEC Loan

Solar is steadily rising in popularity due to the rising energy costs. Despite the rise, businesses tend to find it hard to switch to solar with many obstacles to overcome and end up with small commercial solar systems. But why?

Many solar companies are missing out on selling bigger systems with many being limited to 99kW or less due to high upfront costs and increasing interest rates, thus holding back customers from purchasing their ideal system. Moreover, with the upfront discount of STCs, there is added pressure to install a smaller solar system, often less than what the company requires. 

Introducing Flexi VEEC Loan for Commercial Solar

Sustainable Australia fund has released ‘Flexi VEEC’, a discounted loan product available to Victorian businesses installing solar arrays above 100kW, boosting the sales of larger commercial solar in Victoria. The discount can reduce repayments by up to 20%, giving customers upfront benefits and more cash in their business immediately. 


With Flexi VEEC Loan, businesses can get:

  • 2% interest rate discount off our current green loan rate
  • Up to 40% more value than current VEEC subsidies
  • $0 upfront costs for systems larger than 100kW
  • Repayments reduced from Day 1


How does it work?

Customers assign their VEECs to the Sustainable Australia fund and in return obtain a 2%* interest rate discount which applies for the entire term of the loan, giving businesses more cash in their business today, and for up to 20 years. 

  • No matter what happens to the final value achieved from the VEECs, repayments will remain materially the same 
  • If the value of VEECs is higher than we expect, your customers get the difference in a cash payment once the VEECs have been created

*the interest rate discount is based upon the expected performance of the solar array and may vary from customer to customer


How does it Drive Sales for Commercial Solar Companies?

  • Upsell on previously completed projects 

Have you previously undersized solar systems to take advantage of STC subsidies? Can these customers install an additional system to have a total system size in excess of 100kW? This is where the Flexi VEEC loan comes in.

  • Upsell on current quoted projects 

Stop underselling your solar systems to only take advantage of the STC subsidies. Take advantage of the Flexi VEEC loan, where the benefit is realised upfront. Maximise your sales!

  • Close VEEC deals now 

Do you have current sales opportunities that are hard to close because the VEEC benefit may not materialise until at least 18-24 months after the sale, we can help!
