Energy Efficiency For Municipalities
Saving cities and towns money on energy usage keeps local property taxes down and provides stability for local governments. But unlike businesses, a municipality often has special requirements and considerations when seeking financing. In some New Hampshire towns, the opportunity to approve any borrowing comes only once a year.
CDFAs Municipal Energy Reduction Fund (MERF) is a revolving loan fund to help municipalities improve the energy efficiency of their municipal buildings, street lighting, water and sewer treatment facilities, and where appropriate, electrical distribution systems.
