Solar Operating Lease

Finance Your Clean Energy System


Saving on energy costs through implementing renewable energy systems and energy efficiency equipment is one of the best ways for Indonesian industries to improve their bottom line. The purchase of a solar system or energy efficiency equipment can help reduce costs, however the upfront capital required can be substantial. That’s why SMS NuEnergy can offer approved customers with the option of acquiring a SMS NuEnergy system under a tax effective operating lease arrangement, which addresses this capital issue to reduce costs immediately and support sustainability.

What is a Solar Operating Lease?


A Solar Operating Lease is a contract to pay a fixed monthly amount for consuming electricity generated by a solar power system on your premises. Some of the benefits include:


  • Fixed monthly payment for all electricity delivered
  • A solar lease reduces your organisation’s dependence on electricity from the grid
  • System generation guarantee
  • Flexible lease terms between 5 to 7 years
  • We maintain and manage the system throughout the lease term
  • Provides future certainty over electricity costs



How it works


SMS NuEnergy Operating Lease: SMS NuEnergy installs a high quality integrated renewable energy and efficiency system for a Customer at minimal upfront cost and leases the system to the Customer over a term of 5 or 7 years.

The lease is structured as an operating lease where the Customer may be able to claim a tax deduction for the whole of the lease rental payments. Terms are tailored to 5 years with a balloon payment or 7 years with a purchase option at the end of the lease. The lease terms chosen focus on ensuring the lease is cash flow positive from year one, taking into account the savings generated by the leased SMS NuEnergy energy system and the monthly rental payments.

SMS NuEnergy performance guarantee, applies so that the savings projected after deducting the lease payments are effectively guaranteed. This provides peace of mind that the savings will be as projected. Where the SMS NuEnergy Operating Lease arrangement shows positive cash flow from year one then the Customer will reduce their costs immediately with positive impact on cash balances. This makes for a very compelling business case and does not account for the fact that after 7 years the Customer will own a SMS NuEnergy solar and efficiency system for no additional cost and will have many years of savings from the system with no more to pay on the lease.

Where the SMS NuEnergy performance guarantee is provided with the system, customers are provided with an online portal showing solar energy generation and power imported from the grid. System installations are by our fully trained & competent Solar Service team , in accordance with IEC, SNI, Australian Standards and Clean Energy Council requirements. Systems come with a 5 year installation and balance of system warranty from SMS NuEnergy.
