Green energy loans

Green energy loans

Context

These days many home owners are going for eco-friendly home renovations such as roof, wall or floor insulation, energy-efficient glazing or solar panels.

This type of work often comes with a hefty price tag. As a home renovation business, you can now offer your customers a financing solution for their purchase.

What

The KBC/CBC green energy loan is an instalment loan. Your customers can apply for the KBC/CBC green energy loan if at least half of their home improvements increase their energy efficiency.

Eligible energy efficiency improvements include:

  • Heating
  • Insulation and glazing
  • Ventilation
  • Electricity and lighting

Why?

A KBC/CBC green energy loan allows your customers to organise their home improvements in the most efficient way possible with only a limited impact on their budget.

How?

You can now offer this service in three ways:

1. QR code

  • You give your customers a flyer showing the loan repayment schedule and a unique QR code.
  • Customers use their device to scan your QR code.
  • They are automatically directed to KBC’s/CBC's instalment loan application page. They can complete the application form in the shop or at home at their convenience without any involvement on your part.
  • Once the loan has been approved and the work has been completed, the total price is transferred directly to your business account.
  • This process does not require any additional costs or IT work.

2. Widget

  • KBC has developed a widget for your website that customers can use to make a financing simulation for the purchase of their home improvements. Your customers can enter the amount and term of their loan to instantly see the monthly repayments. They can then apply for the loan on the KBC/CBC website (or with the KBC/CBC Touch or KBC/CBC Mobile app).
  • If your website has been created using WordPress, KBC/CBC can offer a fully customised proposal. This reduces the IT work involved to an absolute minimum. Otherwise, KBC/CBC can provide a ready-made widget that you can integrate into your system with only a limited amount of IT work.

3. Simulation API

If you prefer your widget to have your own brand’s look and feel, you can use our simulation API. This API is available to anyone who meets the selection criteria and signs our contract.

  • Your customers can use the widget to adjust their loan amount and term. They can then apply for the loan on the KBC/CBC website (or with the KBC/CBC Touch or KBC/CBC Mobile app).
  • The API for green energy loans is a plug-and-play solution: you only have to meet certain basic IT requirements to start using it immediately.

4. Coming soon

As of 2020, the entire green loan procedure will be available in a single API. This will include the existing simulation feature, the loan application process and access to the loan contract.
