Energy Financing

The City of Redlands, in participation with the California Enterprise Development Authority (CEDA), the California Statewide Communities Development Authority (CSCDA) and their affiliated financing partners, is offering commercial and residential property owners multiple programs for financing energy upgrades and improvements. 

These Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Programs provide up-front capital to fund material and labor costs for permanently installed improvements such as high-efficiency lighting, heating and air conditioning, windows, reflective roofing, solar panels, electric vehicle charging stations and more.

The programs are similar in the way they are structured, but offer distinctive financing packages (e.g., interest rates, application fees). Property owners are encouraged to review all programs and select the one that best fits their specific requirements.
