Loans

Nodak Electric Cooperative has a financing program whereby members/owners can obtain loans for the installation of electric heating, heat pumps, air conditioning, electric water heaters and insulation.

Low-Interest Loans

Any bonafide member/owner, that is, a person receiving electrical service from Nodak who has a membership application on file, can apply for a financing program loan.

  • Twenty percent of the total project cost must be self-financed by the applicant, with the remaining 80 percent qualifying for financing.
  • The interest rate on standard residential/commercial loans will be based on the 30-year U.S. Treasury index at the time of the loan application, plus one percent.
  • The maximum loan amount is $20,000 for standard residential/commercial usage.
  • Loans over $7,500 will require suitable security prior to loan approval.
  • Payments will be made monthly and are due on the 20th or upon receipt of your monthly electric bill.
  • Member/owner loan payment will be consolidated with monthly power billing.
  • Loans are available for a period of up to five (5) years.

Examples of loans for standard residential/commercial usage are as follows:
