Top Reasons to Invest in National Energy Improvement Fund

Hello, I’m Peter J. Krajsa, Co-Chair and Founder of the NEIF National Energy Improvement Fund, NEIF.

Our mission is to increase the affordability of energy efficiency and resilience improvements in homes and commercial properties and help qualified contractors grow their businesses in the energy efficiency and resilience markets.

I would like to highlight the top reasons to consider investing in NEIF’s Climate Action Preferred Investment Certificates on Raise Green.
