For Alliant Energy residential customers in Iowa and Minnesota
Yes, you can afford to invest in energy efficiency. Zero percent financing for one year makes it possible. If you qualify, there are no loan fees, no points, no security liens and most importantly, no down payments. Plus, the application and approval process is easy and fast.
Do the math – see how much energy-efficient upgrades will reduce your monthly energy bill. The savings may very well pay your monthly loan payment – and then some.
Any equipment qualifying for a rebate is also eligible for low-interest financing. You can tailor your financial package to meet your needs, and you'll benefit from lower energy costs for years to come.
How much can I borrow?
The minimum loan amount is $1,500. The maximum amount that you can borrow is $25,000. Financing is available for qualifying equipment and contract labor.
Do-it-yourself labor expenses do not qualify for financing.
What is the interest rate?
The longer the loan term, the higher the interest rate.
Terms range from 0-60 months with the corresponding fixed APR between 0-6.9 percent. For example, if you choose a 12-month-or-less loan, you may be able to borrow funds interest-free, while 60-month loans are at 6.9 percent. The term and interest rate are determined upon origination of the loan. The term and rate are not adjustable following closing.
If you qualify for the low-interest financing per our financial institution’s requirements, there are no fees (processing fees, points, down payments or security liens) to obtain the loan.
Note: IPL is not involved in the loan approval process.
Are there other fees?
There are no fees to obtain the loan. If you qualify for the loan according to the bank's requirements, you won't have to pay any loan processing fees, points, down payments or security liens.
