ACP Loan Criteria and Requirement

Sustainable Energy Fund’s loan application process ensures that our in-demand resources are allocated to the organizations that need them most and to projects that align with our mission. In order to qualify for our financing, your project must generate renewable energy.

Municipalities, nonprofits, and small businesses are eligible.

Expedited Underwriting Requests

Since the ACP loan is for project costs up to $100,000, you may qualify for expedited underwriting. Loans that meet the qualifications for expedited underwriting need only submit a completed loan application for review. The application fee is waived.

Please note that these requests can only be fulfilled for borrowers who submit a completed loan application and meet additional criteria. We do not offer expedited underwriting to borrowers whose primary business is selling one or more of the following:

  • Tobacco and vaping products
  • Marijuana
  • Alcohol
  • Fossil fuels

Instead, these businesses must go through our normal application and underwriting process.

Loan Approval Timelines

Sustainable Energy Fund seeks to approve loans for underwriting as efficiently as possible, so you’ll be able to start your sustainable energy project sooner rather than later. Since our ACP loans are for projects up to $100,000, you can expect a credit decision within a single business day after we receive your application. Loan requests in this range that do not meet the requirements for expedited underwriting will take one to three business days to process. If your project is over $100,000, contact us to learn more about additional financing options.
