A Letter from FIGTREE
Thank you for your interest in FIGTREE Energy Financing. We invite you to read our letter to you, a valued California property owner, to learn what FIGTREE PACE can do for you.
FIGTREE PACE Commercial Financing
Smart Financing! Traditional bank loans and lease programs are based on personal credit and income, FIGTREE PACE financing is based on the value of your property. FIGTREE PACE financing has a fixed rate and requires no money down. Financing payments are made as an assessment payment on your property tax bill. If you sell your property, the assessment payment on your tax bill transfers to the next owner.
Smart Investment: Energy efficient equipment, better insulation and solar energy can help you lock in low-cost energy.
Lower Utility Bills: Energy savings can offset the cost of financing and can even create positive cash flow.
Tax Incentives & Energy Rebates: Federal and state tax incentives combined with utility rebates can lower you upfront investment significantly. Solar equipment alone can yield a tax incentive of 30%.
Increase Property Value: Energy efficient buildings with clean energy retrofits are valued by prospective buyers and, on average, fetch a higher sales price when sold.
Energy Compliant: Starting in 2012, California law requires disclosure of energy efficiency ratings upon sales, rental, or refinancing of properties. Energy efficient buildings with clean energy retrofits will be in compliance.
