Press Release

Sun West Mortgage Company Partners with EGIA to Introduce the FHA PowerSaver Loan Program
Go Back - Home > Press Releases > Cerritos, CA - May 15, 2012

Investing in Home Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Upgrades Now More Affordable than Ever for Thousands of Homeowners

Sun West Mortgage Company (Sun West) has teamed with the Electric & Gas Industries Association (EGIA) to offer homeowners access to the new Federal Housing Administration (FHA) sponsored PowerSaver Loan Program. Sun West is now accepting applications over the phone at (866) 740-3677 or on the web at

PowerSaver has been designed to assist homeowners by giving them a powerful tool to accelerate investment in home energy efficiency upgrades and realize substantial ongoing energy savings. Qualified homeowners may borrow up to $25,000 to make energy-efficient and renewable energy improvements to their primary residence. The allowable improvements include the installation of insulation, duct sealing, replacement doors and windows, central heating and cooling systems, water heaters, solar panels, and geothermal heat pumps. Coupled with competitive interest rates, PowerSaver offers finance terms of up to 15 years for qualified energy efficiency home improvements and up to 20 years for renewable energy improvements.

This national loan program is backed by FHA and is sold on the secondary market. It, therefore, has funding that is not dependent on local utility or government programs. As an added incentive, Sun West Mortgage is offering to reimburse the borrower's closing costs for approximately the first 1,000 loans (or until funds are expended) through a grant provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The PowerSaver Loan program is designed to complement other utility and government sponsored home energy incentives. For example, many California homeowners are already eligible to receive up to $4,000 in rebates for some of the same home energy improvements through Energy Upgrade California. Homeowners can now take advantage of both the California rebates and special PowerSaver financing for eligible home energy improvements. EGIA is providing streamlined enrollment to Energy Upgrade California-qualified contractors to become EGIA GEOSmart Authorized Contractors eligible to install PowerSaver financed improvements.

Sun West Mortgage Company is approved by the Department of HUD as well as by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Sun West is one of select group of lenders in the country offering this program. "We are proud of the fact that FHA has chosen us to pilot the PowerSaver program," said Pavan Agarwal, CEO of Sun West Mortgage Company. "The PowerSaver is in line with our commitment to write affordable loans that benefit our customers and our community."

Under its partnership with Sun West, EGIA's function is to enroll and screen the home improvement contractors to be sure there are properly licensed, insured and follow national installation standards. EGIA also reviews each contractor's proposal to be sure the improvements meet federal energy efficiency and renewable energy standards.

"Sun West Mortgage's expertise as a national lender of government-backed mortgages along with EGIA's experience as a national contractor membership organization that also works closely with utility, government and manufacturers is a perfect fit for consumers considering energy efficiency upgrades," said Bruce Matulich, CEO, EGIA. "We look forward to growing our partnership beyond California and to other programs aimed at making home energy improvements more affordable."
