Ecology Building Society Offers Loans for Sustainable Building

ecology_building_society.jpgSavings 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.
