Energy Efficient Financing

Short-term upgrades for long-term savings

Providing Nova Scotians with flexible, affordable financing.

Investing in energy-efficient upgrades will result in long-term savings for your home or business. With a variety of financing options available, CUA can help you improve your energy efficiency while also having a positive impact on the environment. Our financing rates for energy-efficient upgrades are as low as 4.49%.

Before you explore upgrades such as solar panels, heat pumps, insulation, windows, LED lighting solutions or other renovations, look into existing programs in your area to maximize your efforts - and your savings. Whether you're a home or business owner, we recommend getting started with a visit from Efficiency Nova Scotia's website. Take advantage of tips, guidelines and helpful resources available to plan your energy-efficient project. 

  • For homeowners, CUA recommends starting with a Home Energy Assessment from Efficiency Nova Scotia. At just $99, the Assessment provides a complete efficiency analysis, along with a list of recommended upgrades for the home.
  • For businesses, learn more about how to turn your business into an energy genius and explore possible rebates using the online rebate calculator.
Once the "to do" list is finalized for your home or business, CUA will be ready to help. A member of our team will work with you to understand the project and how it fits within your current financial picture. Together, we will review your various options along with their impact on your short and long-term finances. Our goal is to put you and your home or business in the best possible position.
