If the customer elects to move forward with the project and desires to finance such project through a loan with NEIF, then the Trade Ally will direct the customer to the NEIF application system. The NEIF system will then send an application link to the customer, incorporating the appropriate project cost and Loan Rebate, etc., showing a monthly loan payment amount to the customer. The customer shall then fill out the loan application, which NEIF shall review and notify the customer, Franklin Energy and its approved Trade Ally of the result.
