General Information and Structure
The proceeds of a green retrofit loan will be used to fund the installation of energy and water conservation measures. The loan will be sized to be repaid by a combination of existing cash flow and anticipated savings produced by the conservation measures. Commons Energy is NHTCDF's partner in D.C., MD, VA, and VT targeting buildings that serve a public purpose. It provides technical assistance for opportunity assessment, contractor selection, construction oversight, and access to financing through NHT Community Development Fund. In several cases, the borrower has borrowed funds from NHTCDF and Commons Energy has purchased a 75% participation in the loans.
