CommBank $500 Green Mortgage Cashback

Update: This cashback offer is no longer taking any more applications. We’ll keep you posted if a similar offer returns.

Til the 13th of September, if your customer has a CommBank Home Loan and a 5kW or larger system they can apply for a $500 cash-back. This is a great opportunity for you to reach out to your existing customers.

Who’s eligible?

For the most part, eligibility is straightforward and covers most homeowners who are with CommBank and have solar. To qualify for this cash-back, your customer will need to have:

  • an installed system with output of greater than 5kW
  • a minimum home loan balance of $50,000
  • and a CommBank transaction account.

What do my customers need to provide CommBank?

CommBank just needs one document in relation to the sales/installation process to verify that there is solar. If you’ve kept a copy, send it to them again and simplify the process. Here are the documents that they’ll accept:

  • Paid Installation Invoice; or
  • Certificate of Electrical Compliance; or
  • Small-Scale Technology Certificate (STC); or
  • STC Assignment Form; or
  • STC Assignment Form Confirmation.

How do they provide it?

The easiest way would be to get your customer to drop by a CommBank branch with the required document. They’ll process it there and the ROI of the solar investment would be $500 quicker. Your customers can also call CommBank (on 1300 113 539) and they’ll take you through how to submit the request.

When is the final date for submission?

11:59pm AEST 13 September 2019
