Upgrade to energy efficient living

Claudia Flores was pleasantly surprised by how fast and easy her upgrades were

Claudia Flores was looking to complete energy efficiency upgrades throughout her home and initially applied for Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing, but she worried that the process and tax restrictions were too problematic. She reached out to a local certified contractor in her neighborhood and requested an estimate for the work she wished to complete.

After making the estimate, the contractor introduced Claudia to the Residential Energy Efficiency Loan (REEL) program and shared with her the very positive experiences of other customers. Claudia reached out to a lender approved for the REEL program and was surprised to learn the application process was fast, straightforward and easy. She was instantly approved for financing and appreciated the flexible terms. Today, Claudia loves her home upgrades and enjoys the peace of mind that comes from having financed them with affordable payments and no property liens.
