The ability to finance energy improvements and sustainable features and practices in our homes and businesses is a critical, yet often overlooked aspect of sustainability, and specifically green building.  However, for a variety of reasons, green mortgages and green commercial loan programs have not been effectively marketed by financial institutions or sought out by prospective borrowers.  Even today, as a growing number of people are slowly becoming more familiar with the term green mortgage, and a select few banks and lenders are beginning to warm to the idea of specifically offering financing for energy efficiency and improvements, there is still a noticeable void in the marketplace for such products. 


Riesterer Law works with financial institutions, mortgage lenders and mortgage brokers that are interested in attempting to fill this void in the marketplace by providing financing for borrowers seeking to build, purchase or renovate a property with energy efficient systems and features.  Riesterer Law helps clients understand the marketplace, connect and interact with design and building professionals who are working on these energy efficient projects, and work through the maze of complex regulations and underwriting guidelines associated with the few green mortgage options currently available. 

The firm is also available to work with individuals and businesses interested in seeking financing for energy efficiency or energy improvement projects, and can serve as an ally and advocate for such clients in negotiations with banks and lenders regarding these and other financing issues.
