Ready to Get Started? It's Easy:
Step One - Develop Project
Contact a Participating Me2 Contractor to develop an eligible project. The Me2 Participating Contractors listing has icons signifying the type of work each performs. If you don’t know which improvements you want, select a “Full Service” Contractor. Full Service and Insulation/Air Sealing contractors perform energy assessments as part of the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program. Be sure to ask your contractor about incentives from Focus on Energy.
Step Two - Apply for Loan
Apply for an Me2 loan through Summit Credit Union. (READ below for instructions on navigating Summit's website)
You get a listing of Summit's terms and conditions. Click "Continue." You will then be asked: "Are you looking to apply for a mortgage or refinance an existing mortgage?" Click "No." Then answer the questions as prompted. Then click "Apply Now." A new page will open. You may then create a user name and password and click "Apply for a loan."
After you have completed the above application, re-enter Summit Credit Union’s Me2 Application page and select “Upload a Document.” Then upload this form along with your application, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an Enhanced Focus on Energy Applicant, use this form for enhanced rewards.
Step Three - Complete Project and Close Loan
Once a Me2 Participating Contractor completes your qualifying energy improvements, you can close your loan at a Summit Credit Union Branch convenient to you. You and your contractor should complete the Completion Certificate and upload it to your Summit online account or email it to email@example.com.
Then, enjoy the comfort of your energy efficient home for years to come!
