Trade allies team up with Craft3 for on-bill financing

To reduce the upfront cost of energy-efficiency upgrades and help move projects forward, trade allies can connect customers with a combination of Energy Trust incentives, local rebate programs, state tax credits and on-bill repayment plans from Craft3.

Energy Trust and Craft3 work together to bring affordable energy-efficiency upgrades to eligible homeowners in Oregon and Washington. On-bill repayment loans are only available to customers installing qualifying energy-efficiency upgrades with Energy Trust trade allies.

With Craft3 loans, monthly payments are low and there are no out-of-pocket expenses. On-bill loan payments are included as a line item on utility statements, so energy savings helps offset the cost of the loan and customers don’t need to keep track of extra bills each month. Flexible credit criteria based on a customer’s utility payment history means that even customers with less-than-perfect credit may be eligible.

According to Todd Hutches at the Heat Pump Store, “The process and communication from Craft3 has been great for me. They keep me informed about how far along the process is, and let us know when we can schedule the install for the customer. I would recommend Craft3, and I do at every sales proposal. Our customers are excited to learn that they have an option to get the system financed and pay through their [utility] bill. The process has been easy for customers to navigate.”
