- New Green Hub with market leading rate on Loans
- Simple One-Stop-Shop solution for retrofit customers.
- An Post at centre of national retrofit and recovery drive.
- Partnerships deliver expertise and winning finance package.
An Post has revealed its plans to become the go to location for ‘Green Finance’ and the growing home retrofit and sustainable energy business.
This week, An Post pushed the button on its online Green Hub (anpost.com/green-hub) Ireland’s first facility providing end-to-end project management and money-saving advice for all levels of home retro-fitting supported with a market-leading loan rate.
This one-stop-shop approach will cover loan-only or full retro-fit services, from initial home assessments to completed works and a seamless SEAI grant application and payment process. An Post has partnered with leading Irish energy company SSE Airtricity to give free home assessments and the fulfilment of works.
An Post Green Hub users have access to SSE Airtricity’s interactive tool which provides a clear first look at potential energy efficient measures and associated work for their particular home, based on their Eircode or current BER rating. This offers true value to the customer and helps develop their understanding of the likely project size, options, costs and benefits from the earliest possible point, making the entire retrofitting project and process easier to understand and imagine.
An Post is joining forces in this venture with Avantcard to provide a market-leading headline rate 4.9% on Green Loans of €20,000+ and varying rates for other loans, customised to the applicant.
Debbie Byrne, Managing Director, An Post Retail says the company’s financial strategy is to be central to the national push to retro-fit up to 500,000 houses and through householders’ desire to make environmentally responsible decisions when investing in their homes or moving to an Electric Vehicle
‘Our customer-friendly ‘Green Hub’ is our way of supporting this essential plan for Ireland, she said.
“An Post has a proven commitment to Sustainability. We have Ireland’s largest e-vehicle fleet and our Eco-plan, a company-wide programme of measures supporting that commitment. We already provide our customers with trusted, value-for-money products. As other financial networks retreat, we have invested in improving and expanding our retail and financial services for individuals and the communities we serve.
“As we come through the Covid-19 crisis, there will be a strong push to get the country back on its feet and more emphasis on sensible spending and value-for-money,’ she said.
