The Economic Development Corporation (EDC) of the City of Detroit is offering financial assistance to commercial, institutional and public buildings in Detroit that install energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. Loans are available between $50,000 to $150,000. Eligible technologies include building insulation, glazing treatments, windows, doors, weatherstripping, insulated roofs, solar panels, geothermal installations, wind, hydroelectric, thermal load reduction, HVAC, interior and exterior lighting, electrical, humidification and low flow water/plumbing projects. Other technologies may also be eligible for funding. In order to apply for financial assistance, contact the Program Manager listed below.

This program is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Better Buildings Program. The DOE has awarded over $500 million in federal funds to more than 40 states, local governments, and organizations to administer local programs targeting a variety of building types. Combined, these local programs are expected to improve the efficiency of more than 170,000 buildings through 2013 and save up to $65 million in energy costs annually.
