FannieMae HomeStyle Energy mortgage loan requires the borrower to get a Home Energy Score.
The FannieMae loan is designed to help lenders offer financing for homeowners to increase home energy efficiency and reduce utility costs. Borrowers can finance energy-efficient upgrades when purchasing or refinancing a home. For a borrower to receive more than $3,500 for weatherization, water-efficiency, or other energy related improvement, the lender will work with the borrower to obtain a home energy report. The Home Energy Score is recognized by FannieMae.
