Ygrene for Hurricane Prevention: Florida Homeowners Speak Out
Sharon Mulberry (Gainesville homeowner): "Without Ygrene's financing, I wouldn't have been able to afford a new roof before Hurricane Hermine. Upgrading my 50-year old roof right before the hurricane hit was what saved my property."
Rasha Cameau (Miami Shores homeowner): "I am so grateful for the Ygrene program. Insurance rates are already acutely high in South Florida, but I was able to decrease my annual property insurance by $3,700 as a result of using the Ygrene program to finance a new roof and impact resistant doors and windows."
Hermine and Matthew were wake-up calls to many Sunshine State homeowners who are turning to Ygrene to prepare for the next big one. Unlike traditional, credit-based financing, Ygrene PACE financing can offer lower payments and can be paid over a longer period of time, with terms of up to 20 years.
"As the need to protect properties from hurricane and climate related damage continues to grow, access to fast and affordable financing is essential," said Stacey Lawson, CEO of Ygrene Energy Fund. "We're here to help Florida communities address serious concerns around extreme weather in order to keep families and homes safe."
