ANZ and leading renewable energy company Jackgreen Ltd [ASX: JGL]) have joined forces to create the ANZ First Easy Being Green Visa card, which will offer consumers a six month interest-free period for the cost of installing an Easy Being Green environmentally friendly solar hot water system.


"There are obviously clear benefits for the environment of installing a hot water system that uses solar power energy," said Jackgreen CEO Andrew Randall.

"But the environment isn't the only winner when it comes to solar hot water - many households have been able to save up to 30 per cent from their electricity bill after installing an Easy Being Green solar hot water system."

"The initial upfront cost of installing a solar hot water system can seem significant, which is why the new ANZ First Easy Being Green Visa Card is so worthwhile. It will allow consumers to complete the installation and pay it off within six months without paying any interest.

"More significantly, with the range of state and federal government rebates in place, it's often up to the consumer to fork out large sums of money for a solar system and wait to be reimbursed.

"The ANZ First Easy Being Green Visa Card means you won't be out of pocket while waiting for the government to process your rebate application.

"With the support of ANZ, Jackgreen is in a better position than ever before to encourage everyone to take personal action against climate change without having to spend large amounts of money upfront."

ANZ, General Manager Consumer Cards and Unsecured Lending, Steve Rubenstein said: "We know that many of our customers would like to do more to reduce their environmental footprint but may be deterred by the initial costs. ANZ First Easy Being Green Visa is just one way we can help customers manage the upfront costs of making a sustainable investment in their future."

Customers who purchase and install an Easy Being Green solar hot water system from Jackgreen and pay for it on their ANZ First Easy Being Green Visa card will pay no interest for six months up to $6000 (subject to their credit limit) - all other purchases will attract the normal interest rate. Applicants are subject to ANZ's normal credit criteria.
