Green Energy Money (GEM) offers financial solutions for single family and multi-family energy efficiency and renewable energy new construction and retrofit projects. Our strategic alliances and partners include mortgage and financial companies, appraisers, building science consultants, and utilities around the country. We work with builders, developers and real estate owners to drive High-Performance Building and energy reductions in our communities.

In addition, GEM has developed green appraisal practices and methods that standardize a “recognized green premium” in energy efficiency. These methods have been accepted and approved by national mortgage and appraisal industry organizations and meet all regulatory compliance guidelines.

The GEM team strives to create excellence and an experience that empowers, informs and supports a new paradigm for doing business. By incorporating sustainability principles, we improve our economic growth and social culture.

GEM Supports Builders and Developers to Advance High-Performance Building

It’s a new paradigm. Today’s building environment can be overwhelming for most builders. Staying ahead of technological advancement, building code and carbon reduction mandates, web-based marketing and financial, utility regulatory shifts can be a daunting experience for most real estate construction companies.

Green Energy Money, Inc is proud to be a valued resource and market-based solution for our building community. We understand that increasing building costs to improve energy efficiency can make it difficult to absorb cost outlays, translate and quantify to consumer and financial markets. The old myths and perceptions around green building affordability have shifted dramatically. It doesn’t have to cost more to enjoy energy and financial interdependence.

We understand how important having the right financing team can be to our builder’s success. We work with all builders, large and small production, to small custom builders to help them structure and facilitate financing and appraisal valuations for their green-high-performance projects and clients.

We offer financing through our lender strategic alliances in most of the US and Canada; for more information on loan programs, customer loan information click here.

We have successfully helped many builders overcome challenges in the green-built space. Including marketing and economic analysis, and facilitating building performance modeling to improve efficiencies.

We promote green builders. By filling out our preferred builder online forms, we can obtain preferred high-performance builder status and become part of our trusted builder network. At GEM the distinction is we are passionate about advancing green and WANT to fund Near-to-Net-Zero projects; and we can help builders and their clients achieve competitive financing and quantified green appraisal valuations that economically support high-performance projects.
