The New Hampshire Business Finance Authority (BFA) administers a revolving loan program for businesses and non-profit organizations to finance energy efficiency improvements. The terms are flexible, and the BFA will work with interested applicants to customize a loan package that results in increased energy efficiency and financial savings. The initial minimum loan amount is $100,000, and an initial energy audit is required. Interested companies and non-profits should contact BFA directly for more information.

The New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has provided $2 million to capitalize this fund. Continued operation of the program depends on the recycling of principal repayments and additional appropriations or other sources of revenue.
