Lenders offering special loans for green home improvements
Do you want to make your home more sustainable? If so, you might be interested in taking out a ‘green loan’.
A range of lenders now offer special loans for borrowers who want to finance home improvements such as:
- Installing solar panels
- Installing water tanks
- Adding insulation
- Adding double glazing to the windows
- Adding sustainable energy antennas and wifi telecommunications.
- Doing renovations to make the home more energy-efficient
Lenders increasingly want to prove their green credentials and attract customers who care about the environment.
One way to do that is with green loans, which may offer lower interest rates and different borrowing conditions than traditional loans.
