What is a green loan?

A green loan is structured the same way as a personal loan, however a green loan is used to finance energy efficient products.

“The aim of a green personal loan is not only to make funding sustainable projects easier, but also to reward Aussies with a lower interest rate for taking the initiative and going green.” – Peter Marshall, Mozo Banking Expert.

Brighte offers the Brighte Green Loan and Personal Loan to help give customers the best rate for their home energy improvements

Based on Mozo database, the current average interest rate for an unsecured personal loan is 10.84% p.a., while the average rate for a green/eco loan is notably lower at 7.27% p.a.
At Brighte we offer the Green Loan at 5.89% p.a. (Comparison rate of 7.03% p.a^) and repayment terms of 2 – 7 years.
