When my partner and I bought our first house last year in Skagit Valley, we were so excited to create a pollinator paradise that harnesses the energy of the sun for all our electricity needs. A few weeks after we moved in, our solar contractor told us about the Solar Loan program at PSCCU. Through your program we were able to borrow 100% of the cost of putting twenty-four solar panels on our roof, a photovoltaic system that actually produces more electricity every year than we use! Our front and back yard are planted entirely with the vision of helping wild pollinators-- native bees, butterflies and hummingbirds-- because we live in an agricultural valley where there is very little natural pollinator habitat left. The bees and other wild pollinators need our help!

With our solar energy, we can do everything outside to maintain our garden--mow our little lawn, chip up our compost, weed-trim our edges-- but we do it with electricity from the sun. It's also a lot quieter to use electric machines than gas powered ones, so the bumble bees don't mind as we move among them keeping things nice. Because we were first-time home buyers, we had to put every penny into our home purchase and would not have been able to go solar without the wonderful green loan program at PSCCU. Thank you so much for offering this easy financing for green energy. Also, seeing a solar-powered, green home in our relatively mainstream, working-class neighborhood has inspired and empowered others in our area too-- many people have stopped by to ask about our solar panels and what we're doing in our garden. We always tell people about your green loan program and how easy it is to go solar and help the planet.

Thank you from us, our neighborhood, and the wild bees!

PSCCU Empowers me to live my Best life. I have worked at PSCCU for 4 years and have grown a tremendous amount in that time. Not just professionally, but personally. When I first started working with PSCCU I was naive to how credit worked and had a less than desirable credit score. Throughout the years with the help and knowledge I have gain here. I have successfully purchased a home, obtained Credit cards, gone on Vacations, gotten Married and increased my credit score tremendously! It all started with a cash out refinance on my 2003 Ford Focus.  Allowing me to pay off medical debt and start building my credit. Once my score started to increase I was able to obtain a VISA card which helped me pay for a Cruise to the Caribbean!

When my Husband and I were in the market for a new home, we reached out the Cheryl with Evergreen Home Loans. As Member Of PSCCU we received a Discount on our Closing cost making the process that much more simple. After the home was purchased, we discovered we needed a new furnace. With a Energy Smart loan we were able to upgrade to a more efficient furnace an have a low payment to have the ability to save for our Future ! PSCCU empowers me to live my life with Financial knowledge and freedom.
