Maine offers “PACE” loans for home energy upgrades

May 16, 2011

Good news for Mainers.  Efficiency Maine’s PACE loan program is up and running to help homeowners finance energy efficient upgrades to their homes. The PACE loans [same name, but a totally different approach than the PACE program squashed by FHFA late last year] are subsidized and offered at low-percentage rates.  The is great news with the high energy prices we’re seeing—most Maine homes are heated with oil—and the old housing stock in the state. 

For more information and to find out if you qualify, Contact Efficiency Maine today to see if you qualify.  And if you live near or between Portland or Lewiston/Auburn, call GreenHomes’ partner, Thayer Corp, at 800-649-4197 (or 207-782-4197) to schedule a home assessment and get the ball rolling.

New York customers: National Grid has no more cash for rebates

April 14, 2010

For our New York customers, National Grid has run out of money for its rebate program and is no longer offering them.  Fortunately, NYSERDA’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR is still up and running.   We anticipate significant changes to the Home Performance program in the coming months making it more difficult for many homeowners to access rebates.  As such, we’re encouraging our customers to act quickly before those incentives including cash back and loans is gone, too.

[October 2010 Update:  Rebates are back.  See]
