Keystone HELP Program Hits 10,000th Loan Milestone
State Treasurer Rob McCord recently marked a major milestone in Pennsylvania's nationally recognized Keystone Home Energy Loan Program, which recently issued its 10,000th loan to make homes more energy efficient.
McCord says that Pennsylvania families are saving over $2.3 million annually on their utility and fuel bills because they’re using less energy.
Keystone HELP provides low-interest loans to homeowners for energy conservation improvements such as replacing inefficient windows, heating and cooling units; adding insulation; or making “whole house” improvements.
To date, the program has made more than 10,000 loans in 66 Pennsylvania counties worth more than $68 million.
Just over $504,000 in loans have been distributed in Blair County; $98,000 in Bedford County; $263,000 in Cambria County; and $101, 000 in Huntingdon County.
