Green and sustainable financing sources exist on the local, state, and federal level. Through loans, grants, and tax incentives, homeowners and builders are encouraged to develop sustainable practices and invest in energy-efficient home features. Though program eligibility and availability varies widely, taking advantage of these offerings is an excellent (and sometimes necessary) way to save money and decrease your overall energy consumption and carbon output.
Our organization was designed to inform homeowners of potential financing and investing opportunities within the green home marketplace. Our web content will cover everything a savvy and progressive homeowner should know about sustainable financing—from what it means to own a “green home” to the range of loans available for sustainable updates and renovations. In curating this set of resources, we hope that green homeownership becomes more widespread and financially attainable. Real estate is an investment, and green and sustainable real estate is more attainable than ever before.
