For Partners

The Tools and Support You Need to Deliver an Efficient, Cost-effective Energy-financing Program

Although there’s growing interest in energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades, many consumers and businesses have discovered that affordable financing is hard to find. The upgrades they’re interested in are often too large for a credit card purchase—and too small for a home or building equity loan. Plus, traditional lenders typically don’t understand the energy efficiency market well enough to develop effective lending programs to support it.

With this challenge in mind, Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corporation (WECC) launched Energy Finance Solutions. EFS taps into WECC’s more than 35 year history of helping a broad range of partners deliver effective energy-finance programs:
