What's Ygrene?

Ygrene offers an alternative way to finance energy-efficient and renewable energy upgrades for residential and commercial properties in California, Missouri and Florida. Depending on where your property is located, it may also be eligible for upgrades that help conserve water and protect against storm damage.

As a leading Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) provider, Ygrene allows you to leverage the equity in your property to make it even better. Ygrene offers unique advantages including low, fixed rates, no upfront costs, and no repayment penalties. Because Ygrene financing is an assessment on your property and not a loan or discount program, it is repaid annually with your property taxes. Approvals are based primarily on home equity.

How do I find out if my home qualified for Ygrene financing?

It's easy. First check out your home's eligibility. If your property is in one of our eligible service areas, you can apply online and get prequalified in minutes. Eligibility is primarily based on equity and your ability to pay, among other factors -- not your credit score.

How do I pay for Ygrene financing

A special assessment will be added to your property tax bill as a new line item. This new annual tax payment will remain on your bill for length of the term you have chosen. Simply pay your property tax bill the same way that you always have--either when the bill arrives or via your impound/escrow account.

How often are Ygrene PACE payments due?

Payments are due on the same schedule and deadlines as your current property taxes--this applies whether you pay the tax bill directly or whether you pay monthly through an impound or escrow account. Contact Ygrene Customer Care for more details.

What happens if I sell or refinance my home?

If you sell your property, payments may transfer to the new owner. Keep in mind that while property taxes are legally transferable, mortgage lenders or home buyers may require full repayment (payoff) of your remaining PACE tax obligation as a condition of a refinance or sale. So before obtaining Ygrene financing, you should consider the likelihood and timing of a possible sale or refinance, as well as the costs to repay the tax obligation.
