Case studies using traditional residential financing to make green and/or energy efficient improvements.

I've been lurking on this site for quite some time and I wanted to say that this is a great source of information and there are some very knowledgeable contributors. 

I'm a member of the Residential Green Building Committee for the Arizona Chapter of the USGBC and I wanted to see if anyone would be willing to contribute information on renovation projects that incorporated "green" and energy efficient upgrades that they completed using traditional residential financing options (Conventional, FHA, VA loan programs).  Sorry for the run-on sentence and thanks in advance for your help!

By Conventional, are you referring to home equity loans, etc?

I'd like some examples with first mortgage financing because there are very few if any HELOC options out there right now.  Thanks for asking. 

That is what I figured. Good luck finding such examples (the underwriters have been dragging a** on such financing options for a good while).
