On August 19, 2009, the Nebraska Energy Office announced the availability of 2.5% Dollar and Energy Saving loans of up to $750,000 for commercial and industrial – including educational – sector energy efficiency building improvements. The $11 million in funds for these loans comes from a portion of the $30.9 million received by Nebraska under the State Energy Program in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Eligible entities include Nebraska commercial businesses, non-profits, institutions such as private schools and hospitals, manufacturers, and other industrial operations; Nebraska political subdivisions below the state level, including public school districts; and federal Energy Star® partners.
Eligible energy efficiency building improvements are the same as those currently eligible for Dollar and Energy Saving Loans and are listed on project applications at loan/index.html .
