Pennsylvania Electric: Get a Low-Cost Loan to Make Energy Efficient Improvements to Your Home

by jsgs45 on April 23, 2010

With all the headlines talking about home foreclosure these days, it can be easy to forget that many homeowners are not only hanging onto their property, but want to make improvements as well.

One of the easiest ways to not only improve the value of your home, but lower your electric bill as well is to make energy efficient improvements. This can be anything from installing a water heater to purchasing an air conditioner.

But, who’s giving out home improvement loans these days? Not many banks. There are loans out there for energy efficient home improvements. One is the Keystone Home Energy Loan Program (aka Keystone HELP).

Get Up to $35,000 to Make Green Energy Improvements

If you’re a Pennsylvania homeowner, you can get a low-cost loan for many energy-efficient home improvement projects and products, ie, insulation work, new windows and doors, geothermal and other “whole house” improvements.

Note: The Keystone HELP program is specifically for Energy Star-rated and other energy effective improvements. Hence, three quarters of any project must qualify as such.

How to Save on Your Pennsylvania Electric Bill without Making Any Home Improvements

While making energy efficient home improvements is one way to save on your Pennsylvania energy bill, simply doing some comparison shopping among energy suppliers is another way. When you comparison shop you can:

Ditch High-Cost Plans: For example, if you’re currently on a prepaid electric service plan, did you know that there are no-deposit electric service plans you may qualify for? Many conventional PA electric companies have plans to assist fixed-income citizens, credit challenged individuals and even low-income customers.

So if you haven’t changed your Pennsylvania electric company in a while, it’s time to do some comparison shopping and explore the savings you could be getting.
