NAB and Origin help home owners save with solar

Thursday, 30 November, 2017


Australian home owners are being given the chance to make a positive impact on their finances as well as the environment, thanks to a new solar initiative launched this week by NAB and Origin.

Under the pilot offer, NAB customers can redeem 48,080 points from their NAB Rewards card to receive a $250 Origin e-voucher designed specifically to go towards the cost of installing solar panels on their home. Customers will also receive an additional one-off $500 discount from Origin.

Australians can also receive 350,000 NAB Rewards points when they take out an eligible NAB Home Loan and Banking Bundle. When redeemed on NAB’s renewable energy offer, customers can unlock up to $2250 in value to go towards a solar system for their home.

NAB Executive General Manager of Consumer Lending Angus Gilfillan said the initiative acknowledges a growing interest among home owners for energy alternatives.

“This offer not only helps to reduce the cost of installing solar panels, but also has flow-on savings for a customer’s energy bills and the environment,” Gilfillan said.

“We know that cost is a significant factor for consumers when making a purchase, so we hope this initiative makes it easier and more affordable for Australians to make the switch to solar.”

Origin General Manager of Business, Solar and Energy Solutions Ryan Willemsen-Bell said his company is excited to be working with NAB to help make it even easier for Australian home owners to go solar, with Origin having installed enough solar to power more than 5000 homes this year.

“Solar is a great way for homes to lower their energy bills and reduce their carbon footprint, and it’s fantastic to be working with NAB to deliver these benefits in such a unique way,” Willemsen-Bell said.
