Small Business Advance

Year-Long, Interest-Free Payback Plan

Budgeting for new expenses is easier when you can spread out the payments. The Small Business Advance, or “Advance,” allows SMECO’s commercial members who enroll in the Small Business Solutions Program to pay back expenses of $1,000 or more (typically about 20% of the total project cost) over 12 months, through their monthly SMECO utility bills. And the repayment carries no interest charges.
