Clean Energy Atlanta, managed and funded by Ygrene, will provide 100% financing to commercial property owners for renewable energy and energy efficiency improvements. Financing is repayable over the long term via property taxes, making projects affordable – an innovative tool that allows you to add value to your home or business with no upfront costs.
According to Ygrene, Clean Energy Atlanta can create 2,800 new jobs, generate $480 million in economic activity, and achieve tremendous reductions in carbon dioxide that contributes to global warming. Ygrene sets up a fully-funded, turnkey clean energy programs.
