Energy-Efficiency Financing

Reducing energy consumption and improving energy efficiency in our homes and businesses is always a smart investment; saving us time, energy and money over the long run. Now, paying for upgrades is so much easier with the availability of existing and upcoming financing programs.

State-backed Financing Options for Home or Business

The California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority (CAEATFA) is working with the California Public Utilities Commission, investor‐owned utilities, and others, to develop new energy efficiency financing programs. The programs eliminate upfront costs, which for many Californians interested in undertaking energy efficiency projects, initial costs are a major barrier. Additionally, the programs are also being designed to meet the needs of customers that may not wish to, or be able to participate in more traditional loan programs.
