Medium and large commercial and industrial businesses can qualify for rebates funded by the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund. In addition to these rebates, loans from $2,000 and up are available via third-party low-interest financing through National Energy Improvement Fund (NEIF).
The first $100,000 of a loan is subsidized by the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund with rates available from 1.99% - 2.99% with a repayment terms of 60 months.
Anything over $100,000 can be financed at market rates. These loans make it easier to make the smart choice to save energy.
