RACQ Group Executive Banking Michelle Winzer said the loan had a comparison rate of 5.99% and was available to new and existing RACQ members for eligible products up to $60,000. 

“The Green Personal Loan has a lower rate than a standard personal loan making sustainability more affordable,” Ms Winzer said. 

“It can be used to purchase solar panels, battery packs, solar or heat pump hot water systems, electric vehicle charging stations and eligible electric scooters and bikes.” 

Ms Winzer said to ensure members were charged a fair price for a quality product, members making home improvements would be required to purchase products from accredited Clean Energy Council (CEC) retailers and installers. 

“A CEC approved retailer provides a five-year whole-of-system warranty so if there’s an issue, the retailer will take care of any warranty issues on behalf of the customer,” she said. 

Ms Winzer said this was the Bank’s third Green Loan product launched this year. 

“Our members have told us renewable energy is important to them, so earlier this year we launched a Green Home Loan with a 0.79% comparison rate and a Green Car Loan as well as acquiring a majority shareholding in the highly awarded solar company - GEM Energy,” Ms Winzer said.

 “RACQ also sponsors the Queensland Electric Super Highway, offers five levels of Roadside Assistance and Comprehensive Motor Insurance which all cover electric vehicles. 

“If you’re interested in taking out a Green Personal Loan or any of our other Green Loans you can apply via our website or give us a call on 13 1905 to speak to a lender.”
