The Program offers financing for a variety of energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy improvements for homeowners and commercial building owners. Pursuant to Missouri law, measures may qualify when they promote energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption, or produce energy from renewable resources. In each case, any rebates received by or approved for property owners prior to funding must be deducted from the amount of financing requested. In addition, property owners are encouraged to pursue the most cost-effective improvements (or combination of improvements) to maximize their long-term utility savings and return on investment. The following list is not intended to be comprehensive. Consult the Administrator for details and to determine whether a proposed improvement is an Eligible Improvement.
