The Minnesota Housing Finance Agency's (MHFA) Fix-up Fund provides low-interest financing for energy conservation and other basic improvements to residential, owner occupied properties. Beginning with Fix-up Fund loan commitments on September 30th, 2010, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Minnesota Department of Commerce have teamed together to offer $2,000,000 in Energy Saving Rebates, up to $10,000 per home, to homeowners replacing qualified energy efficient technologies. These rebates, in coordination with the loan program, reduce the cost for qualifying technologies between 25 and 35 percent.
Note: There is a limit of one Energy Saver Rebate per household.
Visit the MHFA website and the Energy Saving Rebates Information sheet for a detailed description on rebate eligibility, participant requirements and an overview of steps necessary for homeowners to apply for Energy Saving Rebates.
