Go Green with Alpine Bank
In addition to offering a suite of "green" services, Alpine Bank offers various consumer and business loan programs to help our customers make energy and resource improvements to their everyday lives.**
Home Equity Loan or Line of Credit
Use the equity in your home to generate your own clean and renewable energy, or use it to make cost-saving energy improvements. For energy-reduction home improvements, we'll give you a 1/2 percent discount on your interest rate. You may also be able to take advantage of utility rebates and government tax credits1. Your utility bills may be reduced by installing:
- Solar electric or solar thermal energy systems
- Geothermal heat exchange systems
- ENERGYSTAR® home appliances
- Xeriscape landscaping
- HVAC/swamp cooler
Fuel Efficient, Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Loans
Make your drive time greener by purchasing a more fuel-efficient vehicle. Choose an automobile that is EPA rated with a minimum of 40 EPA MPG (hwy), and we’ll take 1/2 percent off your loan interest rate when you qualify for a loan.
We offer a variety of rate-discounted "green" loans for fuel-efficient business vehicles and real estate-secured loans. Please contact your local Alpine Bank to learn more about "green" loans for your business needs.
In 2005, Alpine Bank employees started a grassroots effort called the Green Team. This led to the development of Alpine Bank's Environmental Management System (EMS), a program designed to measure and improve our standard for environmental awareness.
