Yolo FCU: Let the Sun Shine In
WOODLAND, Calif. -- Yolo Federal Credit Union is making it easier for its members to go green.
The credit union is offering a "Go Solar" loan for homeowners interested in installing photovoltaic solar systems. The fixed rate loan with financing up to $25,000 can be used to add new or upgrade existing solar systems to members' homes.
The move is just one of Yolo FCU's green banking options and is designed to make going solar more affordable particularly when members also take advantage of the state incentive programs.
