Energy Loan Program

FY2014 Loan Award Recipients List



Low-interest Loans to Schools and Governments for Energy Efficiency Improvements

The Division of Energy provides loans to public schools (K-12), public/private colleges and universities, city/county governments, public water and wastewater treatment facilities, and public/private not-for-profit hospitals to help reduce energy costs through the Energy Loan Program. This loan financing may be used for various energy-saving investments, including projects such as upgrading insulation, lighting systems, heating and cooling systems, windows and other items that affect your energy use.

Loan recipients benefit from increased occupant comfort in their buildings and reduced energy costs. The financing also frees up tax dollars that school districts, higher education facilities and local governments can use for essential services or other capital improvements. Loan recipients repay the loan with money saved on energy costs as a result of implementing the energy-efficiency projects. These loans are not defined as debt, so the loan financing does not count against debt limits or require a public vote or bond issuance.

Since the fund was initiated in 1989, the Division of Energy has awarded more than 520 loans, which has resulted in nearly $84 million in completed energy-efficiency projects and more than $158 million in estimated cumulative energy savings.

Examples of eligible projects include:

  • Heating and air conditioning upgrades.
  • Lighting improvements.
  • Boilers.
  • Chillers.
  • Motors.
  • Building insulation.
  • Window replacements.
  • Renewable energy systems.
  • Combined heat and power.

Applications will be reviewed on a competitive basis until all available funds are awarded.
