HPS Home Power Solutions AG, the world’s leading provider of green hydrogen-based year-round electricity storage for buildings, is offering an attractive credit financing for picea through its strategic coorperation partner Santander from 1 March 2023. The new financing model for the purchase of a picea with a term of up to ten years will be realized via Santander Germany. This opens up the market for the world’s first and mass-produced year-round electricity storage system for buildings based on green hydrogen to additional customer groups.

“With Santander Germany, a customized offer for the financing of picea systems was developed. This allows interested parties to make the energy transition in their own homes with picea and to decouple themselves from rising electricity costs. We are working intensively to lower the investment threshold. This is an important strategic milestone in achieving our goal of significantly reducing fossil energy consumption in the building sector while at the same time achieving independence and security of supply for our customers. Furthermore, Santander is represented throughout Europe with branches and is thus also a sustainable growth partner for the future,”

“With the new financing offer, we are intensifying our cooperation with Santander. Up to now, Santander has been an important partner for us in corporate financing. Now, with end-customer financing within the partnership, we are offering our customers a completely new solution. The installment loan is not only a door opener for many people to take the step into independent and CO2-free energy supply with picea. I am particularly pleased about the efficient and digital processing for our customers, easily accessible via our website.”

The new financing package initially applies exclusively to customers who order their picea system directly from HPS. The interest rate for financing is currently 5.9 percent. In addition, unscheduled repayments of any amount can be made at any time, opening up the greatest possible flexibility.

“Climate change is one of the largest and most pressing challenges of our time. In this context, the energy transition is taking on a key role and the expansion of renewable energies is already progressing worldwide. However, we must also look for solutions to use the green electricity generated even more effectively – for example, with energy storage systems. picea can contribute relevantly in this regard. By partnering with HPS, we can support this transition with with our broad range of financing solutions for end customers,”
