Green Home Loans

GWe offer special programs to help you invest in making your home more energy efficient and sustainable. This can save you money in the long run while helping the environment. 

These loans can be used to finance:

  • Heating & Cooling Systems (HVAC) like air-source and geothermal heat pumps

  • Solar energy installations, on your property or through community solar

  • Insulation improvements

  • Energy effiencent windows, lighting or insulation

Maximum loan amounts and rates are dependent on credit score. Some loans located in Western New York are eligible for a lower rate through a NYSERDA Credit Enhancement program. 

Genesee Co-op also offers special rates for purchasing electric, hybrid electric, and energy efficient cars. Please inquire with a loan officer.

State and Federal Incentives

While these upgrades may seem out of reach, state and federal & tax credits can make investing in green upgrades for your home affordable -- no matter your income. It especially makes sense if it is time for you to replace a furnace or appliance anyway. The limited extra cost can often payback quickly, and our low-cost loans can help you save money compared to financing less efficient upgrades!

You can find information on various grants and tax credits on this New York State Website:

And more information and support is available in the Rochester Area through the AMPED Project, which is a partnership of New York State, the City of Rochester, Greater Rochester Clean Cities, and the Climate Solutiosn Accelerator

"I love doing business with the Credit Union. While I really like to keep my life simple and close to home, I've kept my accounts with the Credit Union even though I recently remarried and moved a little further away. I just feel welcome, established, and connected there. It feels good to support such a human-sized institution where accounts and lending are handled with compassion and common sense - not just by numbers or a computer program. I feel that by depositing my money at the Credit Union, I am helping it be possible for that money to be lent out to help good things happen for other people. I want my son, Dylan, to be positively influenced by that experience, too."
