impact CDs

At New Resource we’re excited about the promise of solar power and other alternative energy technologies. We’re passionate about reducing pesticide use. And we’re committed to supporting nonprofits’ sustainability work. We know many of our customers feel the same way, and that’s why we created the Impact CD.

When you open an Impact CD, your deposits support new loans to New Resource clients in your choice of one of three key sustainability-related sectors.

Impact segments

  • Solar/alternative energy: Your investment funds solar and other alternative energy projects.
  • Organic products: Your investment funds loans for businesses in organic product sectors.
  • Nonprofit: Your investment funds loans to nonprofit organizations.

See a sampling of our current loan recipients in these areas on the Who We Finance page.
