California FIRST


The CaliforniaFIRST Program is a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing program for residential and commercial properties. Through an innovative partnership with your county government, CaliforniaFIRST allows property owners to finance the installation of energy and water improvements on homes or businesses through the issuance of a municipal bond and pay the amount back as a line item on their property tax bill. CaliforniaFIRST financing doesn’t rely on your credit rating and you don’t need to put any money down. Ask your contractor for additional information or visit
