Chula Vista property owners are now able to receive 0 percent interest loans in order to make energy-saving improvements to their homes or businesses.
Loans may be given for a variety of projects such as wall and attic insulation, water heater upgrades, solar hot water systems, efficient windows and cool roofing. All improvements must be performed by an eligible contractor to help ensure high levels of workmanship and customer satisfaction.
Loans -- which can range between $2,500 and $20,000, and have a maximum payback period of 10 years -- are secured through a lien on the participant’s property. A $9.50 monthly service fee applies to all loans.
The loans are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
