Financing Options for Energy Efficiency Upgrades

To help pay for energy efficiency upgrades to school facilities, PG&E offers 0% interest On Bill Financing. If you are interested in learning more please contact your PG&E representative or the SMCEW team.

For additional financing resources, especially related to commercial projects, the U.S. Department of Energy offers a simple tool for finding financing for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects through the Better Buildings Initiative. The tool allows project managers to input project information and requirements and will connect them with the most ideal type of available financing and finance providers. Check out more using the Better Buildings Financial Navigator.
