What’s on offer? 

The NSW Government will help homeowners in the Hunter Region access interest-free loans to install solar and battery systems under their Empowering Homes pilot program.

This pilot is part of a wider program that aims to deliver solar and batteries to 300,000 Households in NSW over a 10 year period.

These systems provide clean, renewable energy and can help you cut your energy bills.

From the first phone call to inquire about upgrading my 5.5kwh solar panels, to a Hive battery being installed (within one week) effortless, everything was explained in great detail and professionalism, nothing was to much trouble for the Sunbank Solar Team (All my questions answered.) Able to go on a payment plan, with manageable monthly repayments. With no penalties if I pay off before the end date. Technicians rang as promised who arrived on time with 100% quality workmanship. Brilliant follow up to ensure my satisfaction was guaranteed, and that the product is doing its job. This is a true investment, which will pay off itself.

The installation went very smoothly. The installers were very professional and explained the work involved , including negotiating and advising on the positioning of the solar panels and inverter prior to commencing the work. After the installation, everything was again explained to us to ensure that we understand what we have. Prior to leaving all the rubbish were taken away and the work area swept clean. I should also say that the sales team at Sunbank were knowledgeable and very helpful throughout the whole process.
