Community Solar Finance Program Launched
The Vermont Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF) today announces the launch of the Community Solar Finance Program. This new program provides $125,000 for interest rate buy-downs to help finance participation in community solar in the state with loans administered by VSECU, a credit union for everybody in Vermont. The time-limited interest rate buy-downs will be funded through support from the US DOE SunShot Initiative Rooftop Solar Challenge II and the CEDF.
The program is open to individuals who live in the State of Vermont who will be off-takers of net-metered credits produced by a group net-metered community solar PV project. Both secured and unsecured loan options are available with terms up to 15 years and amounts up to $40,000. Interest rate buy-down amounts will be subtracted from VSECU’s current VGreen loan program rates. To learn more, visit: www.vsecu.com/communitysolarloan
