Building Green Loan Criteria

Loan funds can be used for improvements to property and can be applied toward the purchase of sustainable building products. Examples include the use of recycled paints, carpets, cubicles, and rubberized asphalt. Installation of energy efficient lighting, and heating and cooling systems are also applicable. Your local Zone Administrator can assist you in identifying and locating green building products.

Economic Beneļ¬ts of Green Buildings
A green building may cost more initially, but provides long-term savings through lower operating costs over the life of the dwelling. The green building approach applies a project life cycle cost analysis for determining the appropriate initial expenditure. This analytical method calculates costs over the useful life of the asset. Green building offers benefits that include improving occupant health, comfort and productivity, and reducing pollution and landfill waste.
