Clay Electric Cooperative (CEC), a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, covers 14 North Florida counties, including Gainesville, Keystone Heights, Lake City, Orange Park, Palatka, and Salt Springs. It offers loans to help customers finance energy efficiency improvements for participating homes. Customers can borrow up to $5,000 for improvements such as high efficiency heat pumps, insulation and certain high efficiency appliances. Customers installing high reflectance metal roofing measures may apply for loans up to $7,500. Basic qualifications for an energy conservation loan include a good credit history, good payment record with CEC and service with CEC for one year. For each HVAC application there must be a written proposal signed by a licensed contractor. An energy survey is also required. A $25 loan processing fee will be assessed on all applications submitted for loan consideration (approved and disapproved).
