Take Your Pick: Top 6 Financing Options

With so many sustainable energy financing options available, you're probably wondering where to start. Don't worry – no matter your budget or timeline, we've got you covered.

Managed Services Agreements

A developer funds, constructs and maintains your energy efficiency upgrades – a move that may result in lower operating costs.

Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)

We'll build, own and operate a renewable energy project on your property or off-site. Power is generated at a fixed rate, helping to save you money. Where applicable, net metering arrangements may be available that allow you to sell surplus energy into the grid.

Community Solar

You and other customers can participate in a shared solar project in your community. When the solar panels generate power, you'll receive a credit that will lower your utility bill.

Renewable Energy Credits (RECs)

RECs are a kind of commodity – they can be bought, sold or traded – that allow you, the REC owner, to claim consumption of the carbon-free energy even if you can't build renewables on-site.

Green Tariffs

A developer builds a renewable energy project and sells the electricity and RECs to a utility company. You can subscribe to the utility’s green purchasing program, and the utility will provide renewable electricity to you.


Take advantage of electrification incentives that typically take the form of government incentives combined with incentives provided by utilities (i.e., electric vehicle rate tariffs).
