Nectr launches Buy Now Pay Later solar and battery plans

Nectr has launched a collection of Buy Now Pay Later solar and battery installation plans in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.

Aimed at helping Aussies ‘future-proof’ their home energy consumption, the electricity provider is offering three solar energy solutions, each equipped with competitive rates, shorter contract periods and premium products.

Andrew Butler, the managing director of Nectr, said these new solar, battery and bundles should make customers less reliant on grid electricity.

“Our research shows that when it comes to investing in solar panels or household battery, upfront cost, having control over the energy that’s generated, and competitive rates are key considerations for Australians,” he said.

“We have developed our Buy Now Pay Later plans in direct response to this consideration so that households can easily reap the benefits of renewable energy – investing in the planet, and their financial future.”

Mr Butler also suggested these options may act as a practical solution for consumers who are enduring the current energy crisis and looking to reduce their power bills long term.

Three options are currently on offer; the Nectr Bee Solar, Nectr Bee Solar and Battery, and Bee Battery AddOn, each of which accommodate to different needs, whether that be with an initial install or through taking steps towards full independence from the grid.

All options come interest-free, with no upfront costs or finances. Nectr also claims that customers will be able to pay off the investment within a competitive timeframe of three to five years.

Mr Butler added: “Making the switch to renewable forms of energy has never been simpler. By offering our interest free Buy Now Pay Later plans, and household-centred calculations of per-annum savings, Nectr is on a mission to empower customers with affordable greener energy solutions.”

Each solar plan will also be coupled with a fixed rate, carbon offset energy plan for the duration of the contract.

This offer is now available via the Nectr website. For full terms and conditions, it is best to contact Nectr.
