The Community Partners Loan Program is a joint program between Columbia River PUD, St. Helens Community Federal Credit Union, and Wauna Federal Credit Union. Loans are available to commercial customers who complete energy-saving projects in their existing facilities. Loans are 6% fixed interest, with a $500 minimum loan amount. The loan can be paid off over a period of 12 to 84 months, with no loan fees, and no prepayment penalty. Eligible measures include: electric heating systems such as heat pumps, furnaces, and zonal heaters; Energy Star air conditioners; weatherization measures such as insulation upgrades, window replacements, and duct sealing; energy efficient appliances, such as refrigerators, freezers, clothes washers, and dishwashers; small renewable energy projects; and lighting system upgrades. Interested customers should contact the Columbia River PUD Energy Experts to see if their project is eligible prior to purchasing or installing equipment. Columbia River PUD also offers a variety of energy efficiency rebate programs.
Loans for weatherization measures must meet certain requirements. Detailed information, including a list of eligible weatherization measures and area weatherization installers, is located on the utility's weatherization website.
