The Revolving Energy Loans for Arizona (RELA) Program is offered by the Department of Commerce for companies that either manufacture renewable energy, alternative energy, or energy conserving equipment or acquire such equipment for use in their own processes. Manufacturers can qualify for the loan only if they have at least two years operating experience in Arizona. Loan requests may range from $10,000 to $500,000, up to a maximum of 75% of total project costs. Fixed interest rates are 5% for conservation or retrofit projects and manufacturing. Projects must have seven years simple payback or less.
