Clean Energy Credit Union Partnership


NESEA has partnered with the Clean Energy Credit Union, an online-only credit union focused solely on clean energy lending, to provide NESEA Members with access to affordable loans for clean energy products and services such as solar electric systems, electric vehicles, home energy efficiency retrofits, electric-assist bicycles, and net-zero energy homes.

CECU's Clean Energy for All Program

As part of our commitment to creating a world where everyone can participate in the clean energy movement, Clean Energy Credit Union has developed the Clean Energy for All Loan program, which is focused on helping underserved populations afford clean energy by offering a 0.50%+ rate discount on all of our loan types. This initiative is comprised of two programs designed to increase access to affordable credit for minority borrowers and low-income borrowers and create a more even playing field for those who have faced credit challenges, systemic racism, economic injustice and/or other forms of injustice.
