CleanFund LLC

Financial Ally


Finance $50M in energy efficiency, water efficiency, and renewable energy projects

Markets Served

CleanFund is committed to providing efficient, flexible and cost-effective PACE project finance for its partners in all communities where commercial PACE programs are established. While over half of U.S. states have authorized PACE finance, the majority of the early programs (and thus financing activity) are in California.

In general, eligible properties are those that are able to pay property taxes while eligible projects are those that provide energy efficiency improvements or those that produce renewable power. In a few states and municipalities, other measures such as water efficiency improvements are PACE-finance eligible.

Products and Services

CleanFund's primary offering is 10-20 year PACE financing for projects and properties that meet local program eligibility criteria and CleanFund underwriting criteria. Target financing size is $500,000 to $5 million. CleanFund sources funds from multiple capital providers in order to provide the most attractive PACE financing terms to the broadest range of projects, properties and programs. In structuring PACE transactions, CleanFund works collaboratively with property owners, equipment vendors, mortgage lenders and local governments to optimize across the parties’ objectives and requirements.
