YgreneWorks for Moreno Valley
YgreneWorks was selected by Moreno Valley city officials to provide more choice in PACE financing options and opportunity to access the nation's leading C-PACE program. Commercial real estate investors now have additional flexibility to make improvements that can save money and may increase the value of their properties. YgreneWorks has completed 332 contracts for over $42.7M in eligible commercial property improvements nationwide.

Christopher Moss, General Manager of True Power Solar: "Commercial property owners are one of the fastest growing market segments for us. YgreneWorks provides a simple, accessible means to finance not just solar power, but a whole range of energy efficiency measures that help our commercial customers cut operational expenses and energy costs to improve the value of their assets while improving the environment."

Ygrene's people-first approach to financing gives businesses and homeowners the most accessible and affordable way to pay for energy efficiency and climate resiliency upgrades. Rather than paying the high up-front costs and monthly payments often associated with credit-based financing, YgreneWorks allows property owners to pay off improvements with terms of up to 30 years through their property tax bill. Property owners can access YgreneWorks' list of certified contractors who will work with them to select and install eligible upgrades such as solar systems, energy efficient windows and doors, heating and air conditioning, cool roofs, and more.

In addition to offering the most comprehensive PACE program in the market, Ygrene is a leader when it comes to safe, transparent PACE financing with a high level of commitment to customer protections. From application through approval, construction, project completion and funding, Ygrene's customer protection policies ensure consumers are supported every step of the way with its complete set of contractor certification, underwriting, consumer disclosure, data security and senior protection policies.
