How does this compare to buying or financing a Solar Battery system?

We have prepared a comprehensive line graph that compares the different options: buying the Solar Battery system outright, financing it, doing nothing, or choosing NRN Solar & Battery plan. The graph clearly shows that NRN's Solar Battery plan outshines the other options in terms of cost savings.

The NRN plan provides significant advantages, delivering the best return on investment compared to the alternatives. Additionally, NRN's plan achieves these savings in a much shorter period compared to the other options, making it the most favorable and financially sound choice for customers.

To give you a better idea, it would take around 9 years to pay off the system if you purchased it outright, and approximately 11 years if you financed it. In contrast, NRN's plan offers quicker and more substantial savings from the start."
