Andy Paver, Head of UK Loans & New Business said:

“EPVS is the first of its kind for home renewables purchases. Buyers can have increased faith in both the installation and the savings calculations, home renewables products are designed to provide. We’re committed to growing the home renewables market and increasing consumer confidence is critical for sustainable growth. Ikano Bank’s promise, On Fair Terms, comes alive in EVPS by protecting everyone involved – customers, retailers and ourselves, the lender.”

The scheme supports sustainable home improvements, removing a barrier to purchase and payment. Home renewables buyers can purchase with point of sale finance, splitting the cost and giving them confidence in their investment.

100% customer satisfaction has been achieved from over 90,000 customers since the programme launched in December 2017, demonstrating the success of the programme and Ikano Bank’s commitment to fair terms for customers and the home renewables market.
