Is Solar Fund
Available for my

Our finance is offered in partnership with local councils. Check to see if yours is participating here

How It Works:

Solar Fund Finance

Our Solar Fund is a fixed rate, long term loan for solar PV upgrades to existing commercial buildings. With terms of up to 20 years available, your business could be cashflow positive from day one – where your savings exceed repayments.

Our expert team can work with you and your solar installer to find the perfect term that maximises your savings and cashflow.

20 Year Loan Example

Don’t be scared of the longer finance term – Solar Fund’s unique structure mean that the finance is secured by the land, not the owner, so that if the property is sold, the solar system and the finance stay with the property for the new owner to benefit from.

A form of Environmental Upgrade Finance, our Solar Fund does what other financial products simply can’t, and helps businesses realise their dream of saving money and generating their own electricity.

    What Can be Funded?

    Any type of business can apply for Solar Fund, provided:

    • Council supports environmental upgrade finance
    • Building is on rateable land
    • Primarily a non-residential property
    • Upgrade has a measurable environmental benefit

    This includes Agriculture, Commercial Office Building, Tourism and Commercial and Industrial properties.

    So long as the works have a measurable environmental benefit, they will likely qualify.
