“The Main Street Finance Program gives us the ability to help our residents with the upfront costs for purchasing and installing new appliances,” Tim Morris, Covington utilities director, said.

The Main Street On-Bill Finance Program is a 0 percent interest loan a customer can receive through the City of Covington, with a maximum loan amount of $5,000 and a flexible loan term up to 60 months. A customer can obtain a loan application from Covington’s City Hall. Once approved the customer hires a licensed contractor to install the natural gas appliance. The customer works with the City to establish the terms of the loan and the loan payments will be added to the customer’s monthly utility bill.

Why would anyone do this?
You can get a $5000.00 tax credit from the feds for installing SOLAR ELECTRIC! And, drum roll, you would never have another utility bill.
Most homes today already have Electric Heat Pumps. You can heat your water with a system which works off of your heat pump. Everything else can run off of free solar electric panels which most are warranted for a thirty year period and that does not mean they will quit working, just have some diminished production. If I lived in the City and was getting some of those ridiculously high utility bills, I would not think twice about going solar. Does the thought of never having another utility bill sound interesting to you? ff so, go online and google Solar Energy Contractors in Atlanta. Do a comparison before you even think of borrowing $5000. when the fed will GIVE YOU $5000. I have almost 40 years experience in the solar energy field. I know exactly what Im talking about. I would estimate the payback, because of the City's tremendously expensive utilities, you system, with the federal tax credit to be two to three years and then NO MORE UTILITY BILLS!
Wake up and smell the coffee.
