Energy Efficiency Financing
A Smarter Way for Commercial Property Owners to Finance Energy Efficiency Projects
Property Assessed Clean Energy
The PACE loan is a powerful financing option for commercial property owners who are looking to complete a $100,000 - $500,000 energy efficiency or renewable energy project. By placing an assessment on the real property, PACE will extend financing anywhere from 5 – 20 years with interest rates as low as 2.5%.
Savings Through Efficiency Program
For commercial property owners who are looking to complete an energy efficiency or renewable energy project, the STEP loan is a great option.
With financing available from $5,000 to $125,000, property owners gain access to much-needed funds to help push projects across the finish line. The interest rate for STEP loans is only 3% with a 10-year term.
"As a small business owner desiring to upgrade my property and cut my expenses, NOPEC's STEP program was a perfect solution. I was able to make expensive capital investments, at a low-interest rate, that were good for both my bottom line and the planet. Their streamlined and simple application process made this a fast and easy alternative to other financing options out there."
