Empowering communities to address climate risk
Ygrene’s award-winning Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing provides municipalities with a scalable model for driving clean energy adoption and preventing catastrophic damage due to rapidly-increasing weather events.
Through a public-private partnership, Ygrene makes it possible for more property owners to afford upgrades that may help prevent storm damage, reduce energy costs, lower insurance premiums and decrease their carbon footprint — all without tapping into limited local funding. These upgrades offer the added benefit of creating new green jobs and stimulating the local economy.
