Energy Efficiency Loan

Wiregrass Electric actively promotes low-cost and no-cost energy-efficiency measures that help our members use less energy. While putting those tips into practice will certainly make a difference, there are more extensive improvements that will make a bigger impact on your power bill.

You can take the next step toward whole-house energy efficiency by taking advantage of WEC’s Energy Efficiency Loan Program. Because these improvements are more costly than everyday efficiency measures, they are often overlooked when you seek to lower energy bills.

By installing energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, water heaters, windows, doors and insulation — with the assistance of low-interest financing through an agreement with Regions Bank — you can improve your home’s energy efficiency and lower your energy bill.

Financing is available to qualified members who want to make a true investment in their home’s overall efficiency in the following ways:

  • Heating and cooling can account for as much as half of the energy used in your home. Replacing your heating and cooling unit with a more energy-efficient model can have a significant impact on energy costs.
  • Installing an energy-efficient heat pump water heater is an excellent way to lower your heating and cooling costs while also improving your water-heating efficiency.
  • Upgrading your home’s insulation, doors and windows will also make your home more comfortable and your energy bills lower.
  • Reducing your energy consumption and – in turn – your energy bill could require an investment in the short term that will pay dividends over the long term.
It’s an easy three-step as demonstrated on the right!The process begins with an energy audit to target efficiency opportunities and decide what upgrades you need to make.After a simple loan process (by calling Regions Bank at 1-888-INA-SNAP)  is complete, you’ll hire a contractor to do the work. Then you’ll make monthly payments to Regions Bank. It’s that simple.
