Arizona Bank & Trust Announces Partnership To Provide Energy Efficiency Financing

Arizona Bank & Trust announced today its partnership with BluePath Finance LLC to provide upfront financing for the installation of energy-efficient technologies used by commercial, industrial and agricultural companies as well as the non-profit and public sectors.

BluePath provides financing to install energy efficiency technologies and works side-by-side with energy services companies, OEMs, installers and distributors to offer turn-key solutions. Most systems can save end-users 60% of their energy consumption. Financing solutions are designed so end-users can pay for new installations from reduced utility bills, generating immediate monthly cash flow savings.

Jerry L. Schwallier, President and CEO said, “We are pleased to team with BluePath to provide an important financing program that can help our local customers become more energy efficient while also improving their bottom line. Companies are seeking ways to be greener, yet many companies struggle to find the up-front capital to complete these important projects. Plus, efficiency upgrades are important in our evolution toward energy independence. BluePath provides the financial model to accomplish this and helps companies see the bottom-line benefit by reducing costs and increasing profits.”

BluePath provides funding for projects with up-front costs of $100,000 to $5 million for eligible energy-related projects including lighting and lighting controls; heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and building controls; industrial motors and systems; boilers, furnaces and refrigeration systems; and fluid transport systems.

Schwallier added, “Arizona Bank & Trust continues to seek innovative ways to provide quality financing programs for our local business and community partners.”
