Rely on our team and technology to deliver payment solutions faster – and without the fuss.

Industry experts who care

Smart, energy-efficient solutions for a more sustainable planet are vital for building a better future – for our environment, communities and for businesses too. These solutions need funding and that’s where Smart Ease comes in. 

We’re a digital-first provider backed by a team of experts in the smart-tech and renewable-energy industries. You can rely on our platform and people to deliver competitive rates, fast approval and a dynamic, responsive experience from start to finish.

When we started out as Energy Ease there was huge demand for solar equipment. Since then, our customers have been getting wise to the benefits of all sorts of smart and energy-efficiency equipment. So we’ve changed our name to Smart Ease.

After all, saving on energy costs and making the most of technology are both smart moves for successful and sustainable businesses.
