Things you should know

You may be eligible to receive Suncorp Bank's offer of $500 cash bonus payment ("$500 Solar Home Bonus") if you have an existing Home Loan with us that meets the following conditions:

(1) the Loan forms part of existing Suncorp Bank lending with an outstanding balance of at least $50,000;

(2) a Suncorp Bank transaction account is held in the name of the Borrower/s, and

(3) the security property is either a detached house or townhouse and has an eligible solar power system installed and acceptable evidence has been provided to Suncorp Bank.

Apartments, units and commercial properties are excluded. Non-personal borrowers are not eligible for this Offer.

Your eligibility for the $500 Solar Home Bonus will be determined by Suncorp Bank. If you are eligible, a payment of $500 will be made to the Borrower/s. A limit of 1 payment will be made to the Borrower/s per eligible security. Where the same Borrower/s have received a Solar Home Bonus payment previously with respect to the security property, then no further payments will be made. 

Suncorp Bank will notify you of its determination and any applicable payment will be credited to a Suncorp Bank transaction account in the name of the Borrower/s within 60 days of determination of your eligibility.

An Eligible Solar Power System is one which has a Certificate of Testing and Compliance from a Clean Energy Council Accredited Installer or by a current Solar Metering Service Charge and Feed-in Tariff from an authorised retail electricity provider. Satisfactory evidence will need to be provided at the time of application. We reserve our right to accept applications for Solar Power Systems where other satisfactory evidence, to be determined at the Bank’s sole discretion, is received.
