Why the ACP Loan?
For a limited time, Sustainable Energy Fund is offering loans at an interest rate of 1% for renewable energy projects. SEF is able to provide loans at this rate thanks to Alternative Energy Compliance Payments from electric generation supplier defaults. This offer is for a limited time only and is for loans up to $100,000. Financing through this revolving loan fund is limited and funds will be disbursed on a first come first serve basis.
Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) is an innovative financial tool for property owners to obtain low-cost, long-term financing for energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation projects. C-PACE can provide up to 100% financing of total project costs by placing a special voluntary assessment on the property that repays the costs of the upgrades including equipment, labor and soft costs.
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.

Additional benefits of this program include 100% financing, competitive interest rates, no prepayment penalty, and a social impact for nonprofits.

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.
