Ecology Building Society Offers Loans for Sustainable Building

Savings on energy bills is one of the key reasons to build (or renovate) green. But your bank is quite likely to charge you a higher interest rate on loans for any houses that deviate from the norm. The UK's Ecology Building Society, in these solar-powered offices, offer mortgages for properties with "an ecological payback." The building society (Yanks read "savings and loan association") also has eco-oriented savings and investment accounts, but they may check your green credentials before you can sign up.
