Solar salesperson with happy customer Lorraine

Lorraine and Derek saved $900 on their electricity bill

Lorraine and Derek’s electricity bill dropped from $958 to just $46, made possible by adding a solar system to their home.

Most Aussies who’ve been working from home for the past few months have been worried about their next electricity bill, but for Lorraine and Derek from Ocean Shores in NSW, the bill shock was a good one.

“Right from the start it’s been a fantastic addition and even with the Brighte repayments on the solar system we are still saving $80/month. It’s really a no-brainer, can’t believe we didn’t do this sooner”.

Our founder and CEO Katherine says “We believe many Aussies are seeing this time as a great opportunity to finally make the switch to solar. It’s the coming together of three key facts; electricity prices are up, solar efficiency is better than ever, and now the industry is finally accessible for most families with buy now pay later 0% interest. Aussie homeowners can start reducing their bills straight away without paying all at once and many solar install businesses can get a happy customer at a time when there is less spending in the economy”.

The Econnect team installed a 6.6kW system with 21 Risen panels for Lorraine and Derek. Econnect has installed solar on more than 200 homes a month across NSW and QLD. Director of Sales, Quinton Doody has had an influx of calls as homeowners are worried about their electricity bills post lockdown. “It shows solar is a recession-proof product because it pays for itself and actually reduces your overall living costs”.
