Energy Advance Loans

A loan program is available to assist Co-op members with energy-efficient measures.

With an Energy Advance loan, Coastal Electric members can finance their energy-saving home improvement projects with a low-interest, fixed-rate loan that gets applied to their electric bill.

The Energy Advance program may be used in an existing home for:

  • High-efficiency heat pumps
  • Dual fuel systems
  • Insulation
  • Thermal windows and insulated doors
  • Attic ventilation systems
  • Programmable thermostats
  • Caulking and weather stripping
  • Standby emergency generators

What are the terms and conditions of the program?

The maximum amount that can be borrowed for a conservation project is $10,000. The loan is financed for a maximum of 5 years with a low but fixed interest rate and the payments are added to the member's power bill.

A credit report will be required and a credit score of 600 or greater is needed to be qualified for a loan. In addition, a down payment may be required, along with filing and recording fees and other administration costs. All approved loans will have a lien filed on their property and will be removed when the loan is paid off in full.
