Unlocking your home's potential, for a greener, smarter future

McDonald Jones now partners with leading solar provider, SolarPay by EnergyBuild, to help work towards a greener future for everyday Australians in the new homes we build.

As the largest residential home builder in New South Wales and ACT, we want to ensure we are leading the way to make our homes smarter, more sustainable and future-ready for generations to come with solar panels on your new roof, PLUS an Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger in every McDonald Jones garage.

And the best bit, it all pays for itself*.

We're excited to build today, the home you'll need tomorrow.

About SolarPay

How SolarPay works:

  • Installation of your home solar panels takes place during the construction of your home to put the roof to work
  • You can access power from your solar system instead of buying it from the grid once you move in
  • Every day the sun shines, you're a day closer to owning it outright
  • It's yours to keep in just 60 months (or sooner if you like)

What do you get with SolarPay

For all new homes quoted, during your build, EnergyBuild will install:

  • 6.6kW Solar Panel System with Tier 1 Jinko Panels and 5kw SolaX Inverter
  • Free Electric Vehicle (EV) car charger in your new garage
  • Solar Inverter installed during construction for a nice clean look
  • Smart Energy App to track your usage and solar power on your phone

SolarPay upgrade options

You can also choose to upgrade any SolarPay options at our MyChoice Design Studio to suit your lifestyle needs, such as:

  • Adding even more solar panels to your roof for larger families
  • Adding a Solax battery to your home
  • Upgrading your EV Car Charger for higher use

Own your solar panels outright

You can also choose to own the solar panels from your roof outright if you'd like, or a year or two later, or just forget they are up there and they are yours to keep in just 60months. EnergyBuild also include a 10year warranty on all solar components.
