Berkeley Electric Cooperative - Energy Efficiency Loan Programs

Program Type: Loan Program

Summary:  Berkeley Electric Cooperative provides HomeAdvantage Loans to qualifying homeowners for energy efficiency upgrades to residences. Measures typically include air infiltration measures, insulation measures, duct work leakage, air flow improvement and HVAC system upgrades.  Loans of up to $15,000 are available through this offering and must produce a reasonable return on investment as determined by Berkeley Electric Cooperative. Typically, measures must produce adequate savings to repay the loan within 6 years. The program web site contains a loan calculator that interested customers can use to determine a projected monthly loan payment. 

Energy auditors will review the home and create a recommended plan for weatherization and efficiency upgrades. Customers who wish to use the HomeAdvantage loan must undertake all of the recommended upgrades. Should a customer wish to only implement some of the measures, they may take advantage of the Energy Advance Loan Program offered in partnership with Farmers & Merchant Bank. This loan program is more flexible, but carries a higher interest rate (9-11% at last update)
