Need help with financing?
We have you covered, with several ways to help finance your energy efficiency project.
On-Bill Financing
SDG&E offers On-Bill Financing to help eligible customers pay for energy efficiency retrofit projects with zero interest and zero penalty loans.
On-Bill Repayment
Medium and large business customers who do not qualify for the On-Bill Finance program can finance qualifying measures with privately funded loans that are repaid through their monthly utility bill.
Energy-As-A-Service (EaaS)
Working with Redaptive, this financing option provides off-balance sheet, turnkey efficiency upgrades that include materials, installation and maintenance at no upfront capital cost. You’ll realize immediate utility bill savings and pay a portion of the savings as a monthly avoided-electricity payment.
GoGreen Financing
Administered by the State of California and supported by the state’s investor-owned utilities, the Small Business Financing (SBF) program offers financing with attractive terms for energy-efficiency improvements to businesses. SBF’s participating finance companies offer quick approval on leases, loans, and service agreements with monthly payments to meet your budget. Visit to learn more
