Clean Energy Credit Union

Clean Ener­gy Cred­it Union is the only fed­er­al­ly-char­tered cred­it union that is focused sole­ly on clean ener­gy lend­ing and envi­ron­men­tal stew­ard­ship. Its mis­sion to pro­mote clean ener­gy, envi­ron­men­tal stew­ard­ship, and coop­er­a­tive enter­pris­es is achieved by pro­vid­ing clean ener­gy loans that reduce the cost of liv­ing for mem­bers while also decreas­ing their envi­ron­men­tal foot­print. Clean Ener­gy Cred­it Union is ded­i­cat­ed to pro­vid­ing loans to help peo­ple afford prod­ucts and ser­vices that will improve our envi­ron­ment and save costs, as well as pro­vide peo­ple an option to invest in clean ener­gy. With around 3,000 mem­bers and 2,800 loans sup­plied so far, they offer the best avail­able loans in the mar­ket and uses mon­ey that is invest­ed by mem­bers to help finance clean ener­gy prod­ucts and services.

Blake Jones, co-founder and board mem­ber of Clean Ener­gy Cred­it Union, was inspired to cre­ate it because of frus­tra­tion and dif­fi­cul­ties over find­ing afford­able financ­ing for clean ener­gy prod­ucts or ser­vices. Exist­ing options were too expen­sive or too hard to find, so Blake, a self-declared “renew­able ener­gy and envi­ron­men­tal geek,” want­ed a solu­tion that would make it eas­i­er for every­one to afford to use clean ener­gy. He also want­ed a way for “envi­ron­men­tal geeks” like him­self to have a bet­ter way to par­tic­i­pate in the clean ener­gy move­ment, like being able to invest in clean ener­gy projects. With a low min­i­mum invest­ment thresh­old of $5, invest­ing in clean ener­gy is easy, afford­able, and more wide­ly avail­able through Clean Ener­gy Cred­it Union. Blake hopes that oth­er finan­cial insti­tu­tions will fol­low in Clean Ener­gy Cred­it Union's foot­steps and offer sim­i­lar options to those inter­est­ed in par­tic­i­pat­ing in the envi­ron­men­tal movement.

While mem­bers are pri­mar­i­ly using Clean Ener­gy Cred­it Union for solar pan­el loans, geot­her­mal ener­gy solu­tions, green home improve­ments, and elec­tric vehi­cle financ­ing are becom­ing more pop­u­lar options as well. Clean Ener­gy Cred­it Union is a great place for those inter­est­ed in elec­tric vehi­cles to get loans for their next vehi­cle, charg­ing sta­tion, or to bun­dle deals with solar pan­els for effi­cient charg­ing solu­tions. Clean Ener­gy Cred­it Union aspires to make it eas­i­er to afford the switch to more envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly options, so if you’ve been wait­ing to get an elec­tric vehi­cle or upgrade your home charg­er, now is a great time to explore their loan options.
