Going green just got easier in California!

Going green just got easier in California!

Good news for commercial property owners in California looking to go green! Last month, the California Public Utilities Commission introduced an innovative On-Bill Repayment (OBR) program that will ease the impact of investing in energy efficiency upgrades. The new pilot program, available in March 2013, allows commercial property owners to finance upgrades through their utility bills. Customers have the flexibility to work with a wide variety of contractors, solar installers, and energy efficiency project developers and then pay for those upgrades through regular installments on their utility bills. The idea is that the energy cost savings would cover or exceed the amount added to their bill each month. And, once the loan is paid off, customers will reap the benefit of lowers utility bills for years to come.

If you’re interested in making energy efficiency upgrades in California — or any state — we can help! Learn more now.
