You can now finance ENERGY STAR® rated windows for your home through the Me2 program! Due to popular demand from Milwaukee homeowners, windows have been added to the list of eligible primary energy efficiency improvements. To finance windows through Me2, the program requires that your attic also be properly insulated and air sealed to deliver more energy savings.
Windows and Energy Efficiency
New energy efficient windows save energy as compared to older or single pane windows. Information on selecting ENERGY STAR® rated windows can be found at the Efficient Windows Collaborative™ or by contacting a Participating Me2 Contractor. Windows, however, are not ordinarily the biggest culprit for uncomfortable drafts and wasted energy in the home. Rather, air sealing and insulation through Focus on Energy’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program typically provides the most cost effective solutions to saving energy and improving the comfort of your home.
Participating Me2 Full Service or Insulation/Air Sealing Contractors can provide a comprehensive home energy assessment that will identify solutions customized for your home. Focus on Energy also provides rebates for insulation and airs sealing, but not for windows. Me2 requires that homeowners first have their attic insulated and air sealed to minimum standards prior to, or in conjunction with, financing new windows. Windows financed through Me2 must be installed by a Participating Me2 Contractor.
Customers wishing to finance windows through Me2 should have their Participating Me2 contractor complete this form.
