SDF’s affordable, flexible financing products include:
- Commercial debt
- Subordinated debt
- Lease financing
- Energy Performance Contract financing
In the past, SDF provided equity investments and grants, but today SDF only provides the various forms of debt financing listed above.
Note about Consumer Energy Loans. While SDF does not provide consumer energy loans, interested homeowners can contact Renew Financial for the Keystone Home Energy Loan Program (Keystone HELP) for financing of a variety of energy-efficient home improvements and appliances. Their energy loan is an unsecured, no-hassle consumer loan for up to $20,000 at an interest rate that is below the market rate of traditional unsecured consumer credit.
How to Apply for Financing
The first step is to complete and submit the relevant Initial Financing Request Form for your project. One form is for energy efficiency projects and the other is for clean energy production projects. See the “Important SDF Documents” box to download these forms.
