No, you can’t use a Personal Loan for clean energy purchases to recoup costs for products already installed. However, it's available for upgrading your existing eligible products or purchasing new products.
For example, if you have existing clean energy purchases and wish to upgrade them by adding more solar panels or a new battery pack, then you may be eligible for a CommBank Personal Loan.
It’s your responsibility to ensure that you’re satisfied with the quality of your eligible clean energy purchases. If you detect substandard workmanship or materials, or have any disputes with your retailer and/or installer, you should speak with them as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the matter, you may also need to inform your solicitor.
We won’t become involved with a dispute
We take no responsibility for the quality and warranty of your eligible clean energy purchases.
