Energy-Smart Loans

Socially responsible banking only at PSCCU

We empower our members to do more than they thought they could with their banking relationship. We have a great respect and commitment for our combined social, economic and environmental convictions and have built, and will continue to build our financial cooperative around these ideals.

As a representation of our mission, we have become a leader in providing our members the ability to access and afford energy efficient options for their homes. Our Energy-Smart Loans cover everything from heating and cooling, hot water tanks, gas conversions—to windows and even renewable energy like solar.

And our empowerment doesn't end there. When a member has an Energy-Smart Loan, green-jobs are created which in turn supports the local economy and conservation measures for our earth.
