Residential Energy Efficiency Loan Loss Reserve Program


The Arkansas Energy Office (AEO), a division of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, launches the Residential Energy Efficiency Loan Loss Reserve Program, which will provide funds to participants providing residential on-bill repayment or on-bill financing programs to their customers for energy efficiency improvements such as insulation, duct sealing and HVAC replacement.


Program participants include municipal utility districts, electric cooperative of Arkansas, investor-owned utility providers, and any credit union or other capital provider working with program participants.

The program has four goals:

  • For energy providers to encourage residential investments in energy efficiency upgrades or improvements that reduce energy consumption
  • Reduce fossil fuel emissions while maintaining service level and delivery to ratepayers, and maximize benefits for local and regional communities
  • Reduce required energy production in the region through implementation of demand side management
  • Improve energy efficiency of ratepayer residential building stock

Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications will be reviewed based on responses to the application questions. Due to limited funding available, participants will be awarded access to funds on a competitive basis.

Energy investments could create jobs, save money

Investments in energy efficiency across all four of Arkansas's economic sectors - residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation - could create more than 11,000 jobs, generate $240 million in revenue for the state, and save consumers $3.2 billion in energy bills by 2025, according to a report released today by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). The report, Advancing Energy Efficiency in Arkansas: Opportunities for a Clean Energy Economy, examines the potential for greater energy efficiency in Arkansas and suggests a variety of policies to tap into this underused resource.

This report was supported by the Energy Foundation, and by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Arkansas Economic Development Commission – Energy Office under award number DE-EEO000179, known as the Energy Efficiency Outreach (EEO) Program.
