Renewable Energy and Efficiency Projects with Qualified Energy Conservation
Illinois counties and cities received a $134 million allocation of Qualified
Energy Conservation Bonds (QECBs).
QECBs are taxable bonds issued by local governments in which the
issuer receives a direct cash payment from the U.S. Treasury for a
substantial portion of the interest cost on the borrowing. For eligible projects, QECBs can provide
water and wastewater utilities with very low interest rates (from 0% to 1.5% in
the current market) for terms up to 22 years.
An estimated 105 projects totaling
$637 million have been financed with QECBs across the country. The webinar will discuss the types of
energy efficiency and renewable projects that can be financed by QECBs and
give examples of QECB projects in Illinois and elsewhere. QECB financings will be explained,
including the process of obtaining an allocation, issuing the bonds and
determining the amount of the subsidy.
