The NEIF Home Energy Improvement Plan addresses a basic market need. Home energy improvements are expensive. Also many homeowners delay the upgrade. That’s versus installing the cheapest, least efficient model possible. Credit cards, short-term promotional financing offered by manufacturers. That’s cumbersome traditional financing which doesn’t address the needs of many buyers and contractors. People are looking for rapid, in-home credit decisions and longer-term monthly payment affordability. That’s for major capital purchases like energy-related home improvements. Many competitive lending options are adjustable rates and some that appear to be fixed-rate but that can change to a higher rate after a promotional period or under other circumstances.
The NEIF team has been responsible for over $700 million in energy efficiency financing. It has been innovators in some of the nation’s most successful energy financing programs. As well as Pennsylvania’s Keystone Home Energy Loan Program. In addition, the FannieMae Energy Loan program. Finally, because many state and utility financing programs and the first-ever securitization of consumer energy efficiency loans.
In conclusion, NEIF plans to offer enhanced terms on future home energy programs. Programs with manufacturers, distributors, utilities, green banks and state governments. So NEIF also provides financing for commercial energy improvements. That’s through its NEIF Commercial Energy Finance division and advance funding to contractors.
