Queensland Country Credit Union have recorded a 750% increase in green loan issues year on year for the month of April with the trend set to continue into 2012.
As people search for ways to reduce their cost of living, being green has become a good financial choice.
Beaudesert Branch Manager Ken Noble said the choice to continue offering Queenslanders a loan that would help them go green had been simple.
"The products we offer at Queensland Country are chosen with consideration given to both what is in the best interest of the consumer and what is in line with the ethics of our business.
"Green loans were always a good fit. Not only is it the responsible thing to do, but supporting people to use more energy efficient products around the home helps them reduce their cost of living and saves them money in the long-term," he said.
Queensland Country Credit Union is one of only a handful of financial institutions across Australia still offering competitive green loans to help Australians reduce their carbon footprint around the home.
The loan is designed to support home owners to increase the environmental sustainability of their home, through improvements such as installing solar power, rainwater tanks, roof insulation, solar hot water systems and other sustainable rated items.
It also offers the added incentive of no upfront or ongoing maintenance fees on the loan, to make it easier and cheaper for people to upgrade their homes to use less energy.
