Local Clean Energy
News & Alerts
Join us at the March Local Clean Energy Alliance meeting on Thursday, March 12th from 6-8p.
Our speaker this month is Cisco DeVries, president of Renewable Funding. While working as chief of staff to Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates, Cisco envisioned and led the initial development of Berkeley FIRST, a nationally recognized city program allowing property owners to pay for solar installations as a voluntary 20-year assessment on their property tax bill.
Renewable Funding develops and delivers innovative solutions for renewable energy and energy efficiency financing. Cisco will talk about CityFIRST, a powerful new financing model being implemented by cities throughout California that allows property owners to install solar systems and energy efficiency upgrades with no upfront cost. There is no cost to participating cities.
