Residents of Lynnwood, Edmonds and Shoreline can now access no-interest financing to make their home more energy efficient or add solar.

This is a great opportunity for homeowners to lower their energy bills this winter without having to worry about paying interest. The purpose of the SustainableWorks program is to help homeowners make home improvements that reduce their energy use and energy bills.

In addition to receiving a low cost home energy audit, participants can save on items like furnaces, air sealing, insulation, hot water heaters, and solar that reduce their energy costs. To learn more about the program, or to sign-up, visit the webpage or call 206-575-2252.

The process begins with a pre-audit to determine eligibility followed by a professional energy audit. Worth approximately $400, the cost of the audit to the homeowner is $95. An energy consultant then explains to the homeowner where they are losing energy and suggests the most cost effective energy saving improvements. Homeowners can also work with SustainableWorks to add solar to their home.

SustainableWorks then completes the energy saving measures chosen by the homeowner. SustainableWorks offers bulk bundling prices and utility incentives to lower the project cost. Zero to low-interest financing is also available to help homeowners afford their projects. All loans are subject to approval and based on credit score.
