Residential members who want to update their homes are able to finance their purchase of home energy products with a loan from National Cooperative Bank (NCB). We work together with NCB to expand member access to home energy products and services. These loans are available to LMRE members interested in energy storage, EV chargers, geothermal heat pump installations, generators, appliances, and energy efficiency measures.
This provides a flexible option for members to spread their investment cost over multiple years instead of needing to make an up-front cash payment in order to participate and enjoy the benefits of these offerings.
