GoGreen Financing


CSE was the marketing, education and outreach administrator for GoGreen Financing, the website platform for statewide financing programs -- GoGreen Home, GoGreen Business and GoGreen Multifamily.

The programs provide homeowners, renters, business owners and affordable multifamily property owners with access to financing at attractive rates and terms which allows Californians to upgrade their buildings, reduce energy use and help improve comfort and indoor air quality.

Through its partnerships with financing companies and participating contractors and project developers, GoGreen Financing connects Californians with opportunities to:

  • make residential, business and multifamily properties more energy efficient
  • overcome the need for upfront cash to make energy efficiency improvements
  • spread the cost of energy efficiency projects over time
  • improve the comfort of their home or business through energy upgrades.

GoGreen Financing has hundreds of contractor and project developer partners, many finance company partners and has provided over $30 million in energy efficiency lending.
