Seylan enables Easy Payment Plans for Solar Energy


In its bid to ensure that customers always receive convenient products and services that will enable and better their lives, Seylan Bank entered a partnership with Hayleys Solar to provide Seylan Credit Card holders with Easy Payment Plans (EPP) to purchase solar units, a spokesman for Hayleys said.

 With the current energy crisis across the country, and the resulting escalating electricity costs, switching to solar power has become the most sustainable option. However, the high initial cost of installing the panels has limited people from using this alternative. With Seylan Bank’s partnership with Hayleys Solar, the option of transferring to solar energy becomes accessible and affordable to the public.  The easy payment plan for Seylan cards offers 0% installment options from three months through six, 12 and 24 months for a minimum transaction of LKR 10,000 and a maximum of LKR 1 million. Customers are able to convert to the easy payment plan within seven working days by calling the hotline on 0112008888.

 Speaking of the partnership Ruchith Liyanage, Head of Cards at Seylan Bank said, “Seylan Cards, as the ‘essential card for essential needs’, has always looked at supporting the essential financial requirements of our customers. We continuously try to identify aspects where we can provide them with convenient solutions. Especially during these trying times, Seylan Cards has been offering a variety of products and services to ease the financial burden on our customers. Moreover, from a sustainability perspective, this will encourage more people to switch to renewable energy, which will reduce our carbon footprint and expenditure on fossil fuel. As a responsible corporate entity, it is our duty to make these sustainable energy sources accessible to as many Sri Lankans as possible, which could provide a long-term solution to the prevailing energy crisis.”
