Find out about financing with lower rates for green buildings at meeting of U.S. Green Building Council Savannah Chapter

(SAVANNAH, GA)  Jeff Cole, president of myEnergyLoan, will speak to the Savannah chapter of the U. S. Green Building Council Tuesday, April 24 about financing residential and commercial green buildings. The meeting is free and open to the public.

The leading ecoproperty lending program in the country, myEnergyLoan offers discounts on closing costs and lower interest rates for energy-efficient buildings and "location-efficient" buildings, which allow people to get to work without a car, for example. The for-profit program, offered through HomeFirst Mortgage, chooses to take a smaller profit margin to offer the lower rates.

"We're in a race for sustainability," Cole said. "We fuel the shift from a fossil fuel-based economy to an eco-economy. We're reshaping lending across the nation for sustainability."

RSVP to Tommy Linstroth at: by April 20. The meeting will be held from 5:45-7 p.m. at Wild Wing Cafe in City Market. The meeting is free and open to the public.
