St. Louis County established the Missouri Energy Savings Program in December 2011, under Ordinance No. 69056. The ordinance established a Clean Energy Development District and associated Board to administer a PACE program within St. Louis County.
As part of the launch of the Missouri Energy Savings Program St. Louis Program, St. Louis County determined:
Investing in energy efficiency, water efficiency, and renewable energy improvements is financially beneficial over time, good for the environment, and aligned with County goals;
Upfront costs are a barrier to investments in major energy improvements for both commercial and residential property owners;
There are few financing options available that combine easy qualification, an attractive interest rate, and a relatively long repayment term.
Ygrene offers an alternative way to finance energy-efficient and renewable energy upgrades for residential in Florida and commercial properties in California, Missouri and Florida. Depending on where your property is located, it may also be eligible for upgrades that help conserve water and protect against storm damage.
As a leading Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) provider, Ygrene allows you to leverage the equity in your property to make it even better. Ygrene offers unique advantages including low, fixed rates, no upfront costs, and no prepayment penalties. Because Ygrene financing is an assessment on your property and not a loan or discount program, it is repaid annually with your property taxes. Approvals are based primarily on home equity.
