Veterans can save on Ygrene-eligible projects, during November

SANTA ROSA, CA -- To honor veterans for their service this month, Ygrene Energy Fund today announced a special promotion to support veterans by financing a broad range of energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, and climate resiliency upgrades to their homes. Throughout November, veterans who apply for financing through the award-winning Ygrene program will have all origination fees waived, which could result in hundreds of dollars in savings. For American veterans interested in applying, please call 855.901.3999.

"As a veteran and contractor, I'm pleased to offer the Ygrene program to other men and women of uniform for their valued service this month," said Nate Tomshack of 1st Light Energy in Bakersfield, CA, and a U.S. Army veteran. "The Ygrene program has personally enabled me to grow my business, and help customers upgrade their homes at an affordable rate."

Serving thousands of veterans across 319 cities and counties in California and Florida, Ygrene is the leading national residential, multifamily and commercial PACE provider. To date, Ygrene has completed contracts throughout the nation for over $578 million in property upgrades, resulting in $1.4 billion in economic stimulus and 8,675 new jobs created and sustained.

Ygrene is a leader when it comes to safe, transparent PACE financing with a high level of commitment to customer protections. Working alongside the California Mortgage Bankers Association and other PACE industry providers, Ygrene paved the way for the passing of California Assembly Bill 2693 on August 30, 2016—establishing uniform disclosures for consumers of PACE programs.  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.

"Providing easier access to safer, healthier, and more comfortable homes for our veterans and their families is but a small token of our appreciation."
