July 14, 2017

Author Jerry Yudelson and David Kelly, Ygrene National Sales Director, present webinar entitled “PACE: The Best Kept Secret in Home Improvement Financing”  

Petaluma, CA – July 13, 2017 – Ygrene Energy Fund, the nation's leading provider of residential, multifamily and commercial property assessed clean energy financing, today announced that it will present a webinar, entitled “PACE: The Best Kept Secret in Home Improvement Financing,” on Thursday, July 20 at 11:00am PT. 

The webinar will explore the benefits of Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing, which enables energy efficiency, on-site generation projects and storm preparedness improvements, and will help homeowners learn the basics of residential PACE and how best to secure PACE financing.  

Hailed as “one of the Top 20 World-Changing ideas” by Scientific American Magazine, PACE financing is an innovative program that enables property owners to obtain 100 percent financing for energy- and water-saving upgrades and on-site renewable energy generation projects and, in some areas, seismic retrofits, hurricane protection and EV charging stations. Payments are made through property taxes and repaid over long terms, up to 20-plus years. Homeowners benefit from lower monthly energy and water bills, improved comfort and safety in the home and potentially increased home values. Ygrene PACE financing is currently available in California, Florida and Missouri. 

Speakers include Jerry Yudelson, an internationally renowned speaker and author of 14 books on green building, water conservation and sustainable development. A LEED Fellow and registered professional engineer, Jerry co-founded the first U.S. Green Building Council chapter in 1998. He holds engineering degrees from both the California Institute of Technology and Harvard, and has trained nearly 4,000 building industry professionals for LEED certification. Jerry will be joined by David Kelly, nationally recognized as one of the top mortgage bankers in the U.S. As Ygrene’s National Sales Director, David brings more than 20 years of financial real estate expertise to the booming PACE industry.
