Commercial Properties: Save energy and improve cash flow
CaliforniaFIRST allows commercial property owners to finance energy efficiency, renewable energy and water efficiency improvements for their businesses and multifamily residential projects. The financing is then repaid on property taxes over the course of up to 20 years. Commercial properties include all nonresidential properties, including multifamily buildings with four or more units and industrial, retail, agricultural and office space properties.
You Take the Lead: Choose Your Own Contractor and Financing Partner
CaliforniaFIRST allows property owners to form their own project installation team and devise an integrated financing solution that works best for their property. Property owners may work with any properly licensed contractor and any qualified financing partner.
Or, you can use our Preferred Lender, Hannon Armstrong. We offer attractive PACE financing for CaliforniaFIRST from Hannon Armstrong, a leading investor in clean energy projects. Working with our preferred lender will provide property owners with a faster, more streamlined financing process with rates and terms that are usually much better than those available elsewhere in the market.
