CaliforniaFIRST is a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program that allows homeowners and commercial properties to complete the energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water efficiency projects they want and need. The program is a partnership between Renew Financial and state and local governments that was developed to encourage energy efficiency upgrades and support local economies and job creation. By eliminating the upfront costs of these upgrades, CaliforniaFIRST financing makes investing in water and energy efficiency products easy and streamlined. Homeowners simply apply, complete their projects, and then repay on their property taxes over the course of up to 25 years.

CaliforniaFIRST financing covers a variety of efficiency upgrades designed to help homeowners save, including solar systems, drought tolerant landscaping and water efficiency products, HVAC systems, windows, doors, and insulation. As more and more homeowners recognize the benefits of lower utility bills and enhanced property value, it’s important to meet their needs with a smart, affordable financing option.
