How Kiwibank's Sustainable Energy loan works.
Top up your Home Loan with Kiwibank to pay for an eligible solar panel or solar hot water system for your home. Kiwibank uses your house as security for the top-up.
Kiwibank will contribute up to $2,000 towards the cost (over four years) if the top-up for solar is over than $5,000. They'll contribute $800 after the 1st year and $400 after each of the 3 years after that.
To be eligible the solar system must:
- be for sale to the general public
- have a 10 year or more warranty from the manufacturer, and
- be supplied and installed by a member of SEANZ - the Sustainable Energy Association of New Zealand.
If you're already a home loan customer of Kiwibank, they will waive the top-up fee.
If you refinance (move) your home mortgage to Kiwibank, they will agree a portion of your home loan to classify as the Sustainable Energy Loan, and add their contributions to that.
If you’re building a new house that has a solar energy system included in the cost of the property, we’ll agree a portion of your home loan to classify as the Sustainable Energy Loan, and add our contributions to that.
