In Nebraska, the State Energy Office leveraged SEP funding to expand the Dollar and Energy Saving Loan Program.  The program is a revolving loan fund that reduces the interest rate for energy-related projects meeting minimum efficiency standards. Active since 1990, it is one of the longest standing and highest volume energy efficiency loan programs in the country. To date, the program has financed 28,362 projects with low-interest loans, mainly in the residential sector, totaling more than $317 million from the energy office and participation by 267 lenders at more than 906 locations throughout the state. Over 25 years, the program’s extraordinarily low write-off level is just $150,158.
