Energy Efficiency Loans

Loans to support your sustainable choices

We're proud to offer Energy Efficiency Loans, to help you support your local environmental conservation charities and contribute towards the Island's ambition to become carbon neutral.

For every approved loan for an energy efficiency purchase, such as solar panels, double glazing, or a new electric car, we'll support the planting of ten metres of hedgerow or five trees. 

As an extra thank you, you'll receive £50 cashback too.

To send proof of purchase to qualify for an Energy Efficiency Loan, please email with your invoice/quotation of your qualifying purchase/service along with your new Personal Loan sort code and account number.

Please note that this is an automated email address and no response will be made to any additional queries.

Features and benefits

  • Loans available from £1,000 to £25,000 or £1,000 to £50,000 for Premier customers

    Spread your repayments over 1 to 5 years for Personal Loans of £15,000 and less,

    or over 1 to 8 years for Personal Loans of over £15,000.

  • Quick decision

    Whether you're applying in a branch or by phone, you should get an instant credit decision.
  • Fixed repayment terms

    You always know how much you need to repay each month.
  • Repayment holidays

    You could have the option of a repayment holiday for the first 3 months or every January for the life of your loan. More interest will be payable overall.
  • Early repayments
    You can repay your loan in full at any time. Once you've given us notice, we'll give you a settlement figure. It's necessary to pay all the amounts owed if you wish to close the loan. Where you make an early repayment, there may be a reduction in the amount of interest you'll have to pay and this will be reflected in the settlement figure. Please note, there is a penalty of one month's interest for repaying your loan early.
  • Overpayments
    You can make overpayments without charge, which may reduce the amount of interest you pay.
  • Funds transferred same day

    If approved in a branch, you'll receive the money in your account the same day.1
  • Apply for additional borrowing

    You can apply to borrow more money either in a branch or over the phone. If you've made fewer than 6 repayments on your existing Personal Loan, you won't be eligible for the January holiday or 3-month deferred start option on your new loan. You can also take out a separate loan to your existing one if you prefer.
  • Responsible lending
    We work with you to try to make sure you don't borrow more than you can afford to repay.
