Fort Collins offers its residential customers low-interest loans that may be used to finance a variety of projects including adding insulation, replacing a furnace, upgrading water and space heating systems, and improving building envelope measures.  Customers may repay the loan amount through regularly scheduled monthly utility bills. There is a $25 fee for loan processing fee. The maximum loan amount is $15,000, and the repayment schedule ranges from 60 to 120 months. Loans are only available for future improvements to existing homes.

Most of the energy-saving projects are required to meet a minimum pay back period. Pay back time of the project is determined by a home energy rating performed by the company. Contact Fort Collins Utilities for more information on this program.
