Product / Service Description
Loan recipients benefit from increased occupant comfort in their buildings and reduced energy costs. The financing also frees up tax dollars that school districts, higher education facilities and local governments can use for essential services or other capital improvements. Loan recipients repay the loan with money saved on energy costs as a result of implementing the energy-efficiency projects. These loans are not defined as debt, so the loan financing does not count against debt limits or require a public vote or bond issuance.
Since the fund was initiated in 1989, the Division of Energy has loaned more than $102 million for energy-efficiency projects.
