CaliforniaFIRST is a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program. This innovative form of financing was created in partnership with state and local governments to encourage energy and water efficiency upgrades, including solar system installations, for home and commercial property owners. Simply apply, complete your projects, and repay on your property taxes over a specified payback period.

There are a number of excellent benefits of this PACE program, including:

Property-Based Financing

PACE financing is based on the value of the property. CaliforniaFIRST does not consider FICO score, personal income or debt-to-income ratio when considering homeowners and commercial customers for financing.

100% Upfront Financing for Solar

CaliforniaFIRST has helped numerous West Coast Solar clients complete their solar system installations with 100%, no-money-down financing! The program, administered by Renew Financial, offers financing for solar photovoltiac upgrades, including solar panels (with and without monitoring) and solar inverters.

Flexible Terms & Payback Period

Home and business owners who take advantage of this fantastic financing opportunity repay the cost of the loans on their property tax bills. The repayment terms are flexible, ranging from 5 to 25 years. There is also no prepayment penalty for the financing.
