Rooftops with solar panels

Brighte’s purpose is to power a brighter future, today.

We’re on a mission to make sustainability affordable and accessible for everyone.

We know homes are special places. It’s where we have friends over for BBQs, where we help our kids grow and thrive and where we return at the end of a long day.

We take the first-day-of-school picture in the backyard and take our first steps into new adventures, right from our front doors.

We passionately believe that sustainable homes can be both affordable and comfortable, without compromise. That people deserve to love the homes they live in now and not have to wait until tomorrow.

We believe that just as much as we believe in the transformative power of sustainability. We want to create a world where a sustainable home means more control over household bills and the anxiety they bring.

A world where sustainable finance ensures people can live their lives, while making improvements to their home for their families and their future.

Checking solar battery

By making technologies like batteries accessible, we know we can fundamentally change the way Australians control their energy by shifting power back to the home.

Brighte started with a desire to make paying for solar easy. Our founder, Katherine, was surprised to find that there were no transparent, fast and affordable finance options for people trying to improve their homes and the world around them.

In 2015 Brighte was founded, offering Aussie families, like Katherine's, affordable access to sustainable energy solutions through an easy payment platform.

Since 2015 we’ve approved over $2bn in finance and enabled over 2,500 solar and home improvement businesses to offer finance to over 200,000+ Aussie households.

Brighte prides itself on being a responsible lender committed to good practice, the protection of consumer interests and enabling access to renewable energy solutions and home improvements for all Australians.

We’re on a mission to make every home sustainable, so years of small firsts, big moments, laughs and love can be enjoyed under the roofs of people around the world for a brighter future, today.
