Energy Impact Illinois partners with local banks and credit unions to provide low-interest loans to help reduce the upfront costs associated with energy efficiency improvements. Loans can be used for whole house improvements, boiler or furnace upgrades, and Energy Star appliance and equipment if combined with a boiler or furnace project. Whole house improvements must result in energy savings of 15% or more as determined by a certified energy auditor. Terms, rates, and loan amounts vary with each lender, and lenders vary by region. Contact Energy Impact Illinois for more information, or find a participating contractor on the program web site in order to sign up for the program.
