Residential SW Washington

Trainings available for utility on-bill loan repayment

Energy Trust is working with NW Natural and local nonprofit lender Craft3 to offer financing with loan repayment through utility bills. This loan option allows homeowners in Southwest Washington to cover upfront project costs for upgrades that qualify for Energy Trust incentives, like windows, insulation or a gas furnace.

Craft3 loans are designed to make energy efficiency more attainable with no out of pocket expenses and low monthly payments. Your customers may be eligible even with less-than-perfect credit, because these loans use flexible credit criteria based on a customer’s utility payment history. With on-bill repayment, loan payments are included as a line item on utility statements, so customers don’t have to worry about extra bills to pay.

We’ve heard your feedback, and we now offer custom trainings with your account managers instead of online webinars. As a reminder, trade allies must have a 2.5 or above star rating and must serve customers of NW Natural in Washington.
