Press Release

Ygrene Energy Fund, a leading provider of energy retrofit programs for local governments, announced it has signed a contract with the City of Sacramento. Under the deal, Ygrene will provide no-risk administration of the city's first-ever property assessed clean energy (PACE) program for commercial building owners. Approved in a unanimous city council vote, Ygrene was selected for its owner-preferred financing model, which facilitates energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements with minimal upfront capital expenditure or credit requirements for the building owner. The Sacramento program is Ygrene's second engagement with a municipality in the past month, following a recent agreement in Florida's Miami-Dade County. The City of Sacramento's historical vote opens up a pool of unlimited project funding for owner-preferred financing.

What People Are Saying:

PACE is a win-win: Property owners can save money, increase the value of their homes and help support local job growth.

Press Release

Ygrene Energy Fund Florida, a subsidiary of nationwide Ygrene Energy Fund, recently signed a landmark agreement with the Town of Cutler Bay to provide no-risk administration of Florida's first-ever PACE program. Property Assessed Clean Energy is a key ingredient as Cutler Bay leads a consortium of cities toward creation of a Green Corridor district for Miami-Dade County. PACE operates under State law and allows property owners to finance energy efficiency, renewable energy and wind-hardening retrofits on their buildings. Besides benefiting property owners through reduced energy and insurance bills, the programs provide local jobs, stimulate the local economy and help participating cities achieve their environmental goals.
