Lending Center Makes Major Insulation Retrofit Possible.

Feb 25, 2014

For the Federated Church in Morris Minnesota, winter was a high price to pay. Their poorly designed roof was leading to outrageously high heating bills and deterioration of the roof itself. Federated Church learned that a major insulation retrofit to fix the roof issues was possible with help of a loan and grant through CEE's Lending Center, as well as a rebate from CenterPoint Energy, a grant from Otter Tail Power Company, and a couple other small grants. The Lending Center was able to finance a portion of the project through our nonprofit grant program and our nonprofit zero percent loan program.

After completion of the retro fit by RetroGreenEnergy the church is estimated to save as much as $6,386* on energy costs annually! CEE is happy to make energy retrofit projects such as these possible and continue to increase energy efficiency in buildings and homes around the state.
