What is an Energy Mortgage? An energy mortgage is a mortgage that credits a home’s energy efficiency in the home loan. There are two types of energy mortgages:
Energy Improvement Mortgage Finances the energy upgrades of an existing home in the mortgage loan using monthly energy savings
Energy Efficient Mortgage Uses the energy savings from a new energy efficient home to increase the home buying power of consumers and capitalizes the energy savings in the appraisal
The ability to leverage a homebuyer’s investment in energy efficiency increases the number of qualified homebuyers and increases the purchasing power of the consumer.
