Our Residential Earth Power Loan is an option if you would like to make energy efficiency upgrades to your home, including solar photovoltaic systems. The loan is applicable to residential, non-seasonal customers only. Your monthly payment will be added to your energy bill. The minimum allowable loan amount is $500, and up to $30,000 for solar photovoltaic panels. Solar PV financing is calculated based on $3 per watt installed; the maximum term is 15 years; no down payment is required; the loan becomes due and payable when the house is sold; the loan is not transferrable; and the annual interest rate is fixed at 4.9 per cent (O.A.C.) for the first 5 years.
