Have you been putting off insulating your attic, or replacing your aging heat pump? Maybe some new windows would keep you warmer this winter?

wlp bemc@4x 100Weatherization Loans, brought to you by BEMC and administered by the Rural Consumer Services Corporation (RCSC), can provide low-interest funding for your DIY project or one that requires a licensed professional.

Members can apply for a loan up to $6,000 for residential projects and up to $10,000 for commercial projects. Terms can be as long as 60 months, and payments are included with your monthly electric bill. Often, energy savings offset the amount of the monthly loan payment.

Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, new heat pumps with a minimum 15 SEER rating, new electric or solar water heaters, ENERGY STAR replacement windows and doors, insulation of all types, and duct repair or replacement.

If you own your home served by the cooperative, receive a monthly electric bill, and have two years of service with a good payment history, the loan process is simple:

  • Choose a contractor (must be licensed for heat pump installation)
  • Obtain cost estimates
  • Complete an application at any BEMC office or online

You will be notified of the status of your application within 24 hours. Call us at (800) 842-5871 with any questions. We’re happy to help!
