Renewable Energy Finance Program

Being Smart About Your Energy

The typical American family spends more than $1,600 a year on home utility bills, according to the U.S Department of Energy. However, most of us can do a lot to reduce our energy use, eliminating waste and making improvements that will make our homes more comfortable and more efficient.

Being smart about your energy use is good for the environment as well. The less electricity you use, the lower your home’s impact on the environment will be. You can do even more to protect the environment by incorporating energy from clean, renewable resources.

Save Some Green Program

In an effort to demonstrate our commitment to a strong local conservation ethic while demonstrating the effectiveness of energy efficiency, conservation, and renewable resource development, we are now offering you a uniquely innovative renewable energy financing program called Save Some Green (PDF). This program is designed to financially assist you with the cost of purchasing and installing qualified renewable energy systems and efficiency improvements on your property. To accomplish this goal, a loan pool has been established to offer low cost financing to residential customers, with annual installment payments collected through annual property tax bills.

Since this program is the first of its kind, the information may be time-sensitive and/or modified on a regular basis. To assure that you have the latest version of incentives, forms, etc., you are highly encouraged to contact Mike Noreen at 715-426-3467 prior to starting any project being considered for this program.
