Description

 

CaliforniaFIRST is a PACE financing program for residential and commercial properties. Administered by Renew Financial, a national clean energy finance company, CaliforniaFIRST allows property owners to finance the installation of energy and water improvements on homes or businesses through the issuance of a municipal bond, which can then be paid back as a line item on their property tax bill. CaliforniaFIRST financing does not rely on a credit score and does not require any money down, opening the program to a wide range of Californians.
