In a recent discussion with a lender we learned that underwriters are starting to catch up with green building. One area of interest is the thought of a bank looking at monthly energy savings (lower utility bills) as “income”. This means they can potentially qualify an applicant for an increased loan to cover increased up-front cost for green building design, practice, and renewable energies. We will make sure to investigate this further and post our findings.
