Clean Energy CV Upgrade Now Open for Business in Coachella!

Thanks to the City’s leadership, residents and business owners in Coachella have led the way in property upgrades and reduced energy and water usage. Now, Clean Energy CV Upgrade, an innovative program for financing building upgrades, is open in Coachella and throughout the Coachella and Palo Verde Valleys. Clean Energy CV Upgrade, a partnership between Ygrene Energy Fund and CVAG (Coachella Valley Association of Governments), gives property owners throughout the region access to Ygrene’s 100% financing for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water conservation building improvements to their commercial or residential properties.

Ygrene financing requires no upfront costs and is repaid through annual property taxes for a period of up to 20 years.

Eligibility is based primarily on property value and equity, rather than credit score. The CV Upgrade program covers hundreds of improvements, from solar electric and hot water systems to energy-efficient air conditioning units and water-efficient irrigation systems. Coachella property owners can go, input their property address, discover how much financing they are eligible for, and immediately apply.

Property owners can choose from a pool of local, Ygrene-certified contractors to ensure projects are completed by reliable professionals and in a timely fashion. Ygrene has certified more than 100 area contractors from over 40 companies so far. Learn more at or by calling (855) 482-7283.
