Loan pack­ages from Bray CU

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

BRAY Credit Union has in­tro­duced a loan pack­age for en­ergy sav­ing home im­prove­ments.

Un­der ProEn­ergy Homes, bor­row­ers would re­ceive up to 35 per cent in an SEAI grant (Sus­tain­able En­ergy Au­thor­ity of Ire­land), and a loan at 7t 7.1 per cent APR on the bal­ance.

The scheme in­cludes a project man­ager to sup­port ap­pli­cants, a heav­ily sub­sidised home sur­vey and re­port, ac­cess to the SEAI grant fund­ing and low cost fi­nance.

Homes which have al­ready ben­e­fited from SEAI grants can­not avail of the grant for the same works, but may qual­ify for dif­fer­ent works.

Works may in­clude at­tic in­su­la­tion, cav­ity wall in­su­la­tion, new win­dows or so­lar pan­els.

The home must have been built prior to 2006.

A min­i­mum of two qual­i­fy­ing works must be com­pleted by Septem­ber 2019.

A full list of works is avail­able at proen­er­gy­homes.ie.

As pro­gramme co­or­di­na­tors, REIL are re­spon­si­ble for the procuremen­t and com­ple­tion of all works.

Paddy Sweeney, Manag­ing Di­rec­tor of REIL said that this ini­tia­tive we have taken all the ‘leg-work’ away from the home­owner.

All they need to do is fill out an ap­pli­ca­tion form, af­ter which REIL will con­duct an as­sess­ment on their prop­erty and present them with a re­port.

They can then de­cide whether or not they would like to pro­ceed.

No money changes hands un­til all im­prove­ments have been made.
