Stop Wasting. Start Saving.
At Sustainable Energy Fund, we believe in financing projects that will help commercial, industrial, municipal, agricultural, and nonprofit entities save both money and energy while creating a more productive and safe workplace for your employees and creating a valuable impact on your community. We understand that every organization is unique. That is why we offer three financing options, each with distinct benefits that will allow you to finance your project in a way that works for you. We also have technical staff that will identify the upgrades that will save you the most money and have the greatest impact on your work environment.
Why Choose a Social Impact Loan?
Nonprofits give so much to their communities. Now it’s time to give back. When you finance an energy project through this program, 10% of all interest paid is placed in a Nonprofit Social Impact Fund, which will be used to perform nonprofit weatherization services. Additional benefits of this program include 100% financing, competitive interest rates, and no prepayment penalty.
Why Choose a Stipulated Energy Savings Agreement?
Stipulated Energy Savings Agreements are an innovative approach to financing energy projects for commercial entities in which future energy savings pay for the energy upgrades. These savings agreements are structured so that your energy consumption after installation is less than the energy consumption prior to installation. Depending on the energy systems replaced, the project could be cash flow positive from the beginning.
Why Do We Invest?
As a nonprofit, we recognize that we don’t have the capacity to make the large amount of change that we want to see. This is why we believe in investing in other companies that share our vision of a sustainable energy future. We invest in companies by providing lines of credit, doing equity investments, and more.
