In its attempt to ensure that customers always receive convenient products and services that will enable and enhance life, Seylan Bank has partnered with Hayleys Solar to provide Seylan credit card holders with Easy Payment Plans (EPPs) to purchase solar units.
With the current energy crisis across the country and the resulting escalation in electricity costs, switching to solar power has become the most sustainable option. However, the high initial cost of installing the panels has limited the use of this alternative. With Seylan Bank’s partnership with Hayleys Solar, the option of going solar becomes accessible and affordable to the public.
The easy payment plan for Seylan cards offers zero percent installment options from three months to six, 12 and 24 months for a minimum transaction of Rs 10,000 and a maximum of Rs 1 million. Customers can switch to the easy payment plan within seven working days by calling the hotline on 0112008888.
Speaking about the partnership, Seylan Bank’s Head of Cards, Ruchith Liyanage said, “Seylan Cards, as an ‘Essential Card for Essential Needs’, has always sought to meet the essential financial needs of our customers. We are constantly trying to identify areas where we can provide them with practical solutions. Especially in these difficult times, Seylan Cards offers a variety of products and services to ease the financial burden of our customers. Also, from a sustainability perspective, it will encourage more people to switch to renewable energy, which will reduce our carbon footprint and our fossil fuel expenditure. As a responsible company, 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 current energy crisis.
