Welcome to the Clean Energy Advantage Program Eligibility Portal!

The Montgomery County Green Bank provides Montgomery County, MD homeowners access to the Clean Energy Advantage Program when you apply for a loan to make energy efficiency or renewable energy home improvements from one of our Clean Energy Advantage Program Lending Partners.

The Clean Energy Advantage Program offers a lower interest rate than our partner lenders would normally offer a non-Program-eligible homeowner. Our Clean Energy Advantage Program Lending Partners – the Clean Energy Credit Union and NASA Federal Credit Union – have worked with the Montgomery County Green Bank to make it more affordable for you to make clean energy home improvements!

THE CLEAN ENERGY ADVANCE PROGRAM IS A PROGRAM OFFERED BY PARTICIPATING BANKS AND CREDIT UNIONS. THE MARYLAND COUNTY GREEN BANK IS NOT A LENDER AND IS NOT OFFERING ANY LOANS UNDER THE CLEAN ENERGY ADVANTAGE PROGRAM. ANY LOANS PROVIDED UNDER THE CLEAN ENERGY ADVANTAGE PROGRAM WILL BE BETWEEN THE PARTICIPATING LENDER AND THE HOMEOWNER.

It should not take more than a minute of your time to answer several quick questions on this portal to find out if you are eligible for the Montgomery County Green Bank’s Clean Energy Advantage Program. Once you do so, the portal will send you, your Clean Energy Advantage Program Authorized Contractor, and the Montgomery County Green Bank an email documenting that you qualify to receive the more affordable interest rate when you work with the Clean Energy Advantage Program Authorized Contractor that you have selected. Remember, you must use a Clean Energy Advantage Program Authorized Contractor to do the work. Should you later choose to use a different Clean Energy Advantage Program Authorized Contractor, you will need to re-enter this portal and re-answer the Program Eligibility questions.
