Solar Financing Scheme
Recognizing the potential of solar energy and its ability to fight off the energy crisis, the State Bank of Pakistan has taken the initiative to promote renewable energy projects in the country. With the Revised Financing Scheme for Renewable Energy, SBP aims to target people belonging to all sectors including residential, commercial, and industrial, and make their shift to solar as convenient and Sympl as possible.
The State Bank of Pakistan has directed banks to introduce financing schemes to facilitate and incentivize consumers willing to make the switch to solar. Multiple banks have shown interest and initiated solar financing plans for their clients.
Realizing the need of the hour and in our pursuit to make things as convenient as possible for our customers, Sympl Energy has collaborated with several banks to provide our valuable customers the option to pay for their solar energy systems through easy monthly installments.
Is Solar Financing Worth It?
Yes — financing your solar system is totally worth it! At Sympl Energy, we believe that solar energy should be for everyone. However, many people interested in shifting to solar are deterred by its high upfront costs. To counter this, we have collaborated with banks to give our customers the Sympl option of paying for their solar projects through monthly instalments. In most cases, these instalments are far less than what you would be paying for in your monthly electricity bills. This means that by financing your solar project, you would not only be paying less every month but also gaining independence from the grid and locking in the lowest electricity rates for the rest of your life!
Please note that depending on your bank, the below information might differ slightly.
