The winter season in Florida is great. With lower humidity and cooler temperatures, it’s the perfect time to have fun in the sun. It’s also the perfect time to start to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season. At ASP Windows, we are fully Ygrene certified, meaning you can get your new windows with no upfront cost. But what exactly is Ygrene financing and how can you apply? Here’s everything you need to know about Ygrene.
Ygrene Energy Fund
Ygrene is Florida’s leading PACE program financer. What is PACE? The Property Assessed Clean Energy Program enables low-cost, long-term financing for a variety of energy efficiency, storm protection, and other home improvement projects. PACE financing is repaid via an assessment and tax on your property and is assessed on your regular property bill, much like other local benefit assessments for sidewalks, sewers and other public projects.
Ygrene is the leading PACE program financer in all of Florida and offers 100-percent financing on eligible projects. Even better, repayments can be spread out over 30 years, meaning that now is the perfect time to get impact windows and doors installed before hurricane season begins.
How Ygrene Works
Beginning the Ygrene process is as easy as submitting an application. Since the financing is based upon your home’s equity – and not your credit history or score – you don’t have to worry about having an excellent FICO score or a great credit history. Even better, you’ll have a decision regarding your application in less than 30 minutes!
Choose a Home Project
Once you are approved for Ygrene financing, you must ensure that your home project conforms to Ygrene and PACE financing guidelines. Fortunately, there are several energy efficiency projects which are Ygrene and PACE eligible. These include:
- Lighting – including installing LED lights and lighting controls.
- Solar – including the installation or solar panels, inverters or solar pool heating systems.
- Roofing – including roof replacement
- AC – including duct replacements and AC installation
- Hurricane Prep – including the installation of energy-efficient impact windows and doors
Choose a Contractor
Once you and your project are approved, all you need to do is choose a contractor to complete the work. While there are plenty of contractors to choose from, if you are looking to get your home ready for hurricane season, there is only one company to go with – ASP Windows!
