Upgrade Your Home with Clean Energy Financing

Save money and increase your property value with energy efficient upgrades, financed by your local PACE Program.

PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) Programs provide financing for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water efficiency improvements for homeowners. Many counties in California have at least one program, and some have two. You can visit the program websites to see if your home is eligible for financing.

Program Perks:
  • Loans are not based on credit scores
  • No application fee
  • Apply Online
  • Pay back through property taxes
  • If you sell your home, the loan may be able to transfer to the new owner
  • Minimum project size is $5,000 with no maximum
VELUX SUN TUNNELs, VELUX Skylights, and SunRise Solar Attic Fans fall under the energy efficiency improvement category, so the installation of these products is eligible for financing through your city's program.
