SOLAR systems installer Suntrix is gearing up for its transformation into an energy seller after getting the go-ahead from the Australian Energy Regulator. Suntrix co-founder Jenny Paradiso said a billing system and terms and conditions were being finalised before marketing of its new power-purchase agreements began.
“There are two push factors for us,’’ she said. “We need to make solar funding easier in a slow consumer market.
“This is about making it accessible to people that want it now at no extra cost and want to only pay for what they use.
“For us, it’s diversifying and growing.”
Suntrix will offer customers 5 kilowatt-plus systems at no upfront cost — but locked into five to 10-year power-purchase agreements at a fixed energy price “lower than that paid to major retailers”.
