Milwaukee Energy Efficiency (Me2) offers four different financing options for businesses to implement energy-efficiency projects into their buildings. Businesses must be located in the City of Milwaukee and must plan to reduce energy consumption by at least 15%. Interested businesses should contact Me2 directly or use the Commercial Project Interest Form located on the program web site.
Financing options include:
- Smart Business Financing: This program allows businesses to finance 100% of project costs between $5,000 and $20,00 through a low-interest loan through Summit Credit Union.
- PACE Financing Program: For property owners of rented properties, property owners can finance energy efficiency projects between $20,000 and $5 million and pass savings along to tenants that pay the energy bills.
This program is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) BetterBuildings Program. The DOE has awarded over $500 million in federal funds to more than 40 states, local governments, and organizations to administer local programs targeting a variety of building types. Combined, these local programs are expected to improve the efficiency of more than 170,000 buildings through 2013 and save up to $65 million in energy costs annually.
