Residential Energy Efficiency Loan (REEL) Program

Owners of any residential property are eligible for the REEL program, as are renters at the discretion of the lender and with the property owner’s permission. Customers may upgrade a single-family home, townhome, condo, duplex, triplex, fourplex or manufactured home. And, with REEL, renovations for up to four units can be bundled into the same loan.

Reduce before you produce! The REEL program prioritizes energy reduction (through energy efficiency) over energy production. At this time, lenders are not offering solar loans through the REEL program.

With different lenders and loan options, there’s a REEL solution for your home improvement needs.
