Redwood Credit Union (RCU) is now offering a solar loan to help local residents finance sustainable energy solutions. An RCU solar loan can help finance the purchase and installation of solar systems for residential properties. Loans may range from $5,000 to $50,000 at competitive interest rates with both short and long-term loans available. Introduced earlier this year, RCU’s solar program has already helped finance over two dozen solar projects.

In addition to the new solar loan, Redwood Credit Union’s sustainability programs include their LEED certified Administrative Office Building  in Santa Rosa; recycling programs at all branches; green-friendly services such as paper-free online and mobile banking, online bill pay and eStatements; loan discounts on qualified energy-efficient and hybrid vehicles; and an online green center at www.redwoodcu.org/green where visitors can find tips on reducing waste, energy efficiency and more.
