The Clean Energy Program is a low interest rate loan program, created through partnerships among the U.S. Department of Energy, St. Lucie County, the Solar and Energy Fund (SELF), and local community leaders and organizations. The Clean Energy Loan Program provides low cost financing options and energy expertise to help you lower your energy bills. The Clean Energy Loan Program is administered by SELF, a national award-winning 501(c)3 non-profit and a certified Community Development Financial Instituion (CDFI) located in St. Lucie County.
Through the program, a comprehensive energy assessment will be performed at your home or business. This process will help identify the best practices and clean energy technologies that will deliver the greatest savings and return on investment for your particular property. Our energy and financial experts work with you to finance the most cost-effective energy investments, through low-interest, no-money-down loans. The program also assists you with selecting qualified contractors to complete the work. The low interest rate program was established to help reduce your energy bills and provide you with access to various clean energy solutions, including but not limited to the following: weatherization (e.g., insulation, caulking, window and door stripping); energy efficiency (e.g., high-efficiency air conditioners, windows and doors, LED lights); and renewable energy (e.g., solar water heaters, solar electric panels).
