Incentive Size and Funding SourceThis revolving loan program, supported by State Energy Program (SEP) funds and the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), provides funding for energy improvements, including energy audits, whole-building improvements, renewable energy installations, and CHP systems. Funding, when available, is awarded to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. The loans will range from $10,000 to $500,000. The program has a budget of $6.6 million.

While primarily a revolving loan program, the Enterprise Energy Fund provides a limited amount of funding for grants. Grants are typically used to lower costs for non-profits that provide "essential services," and to support eligible commercial entities that invest in renewable energy systems to lower the payback period.
