Calif. Hub for Energy Efficiency Financing (CHEEF) Pilots: Notice of Commercial and On-Bill Repayment Workshops (First Workshop 7/20)


As shared by the California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority (CAEATFA): CAEATFA will be hosting a series of public workshops related to the commercial pilots and on-bill repayment under the California Hub for Energy Efficiency Financing.  The first workshop will cover the proposed program structure for the financing elements of the CHEEF commercial pilots — small business on-bill loans, leases, and energy service agreements (ESA); small business off-bill leases and ESAs; and the non-residential non-credit enhanced on-bill pilot.  We will present proposed guidelines for the credit enhancement structure, finance provider eligibility, financial product eligibility, and underwriting guidelines. This workshop is the first in a series of three summer workshops held prior to the development of regulations for the CHEEF commercial pilots.  Workshops held in August and September will cover the project eligibility parameters of the commercial pilots and the on-bill repayment parameters for all pilots with the on-bill function.

The first workshop will be held on July 20th from  9:30-11:30am PST at 915 Capitol Mall, Room 219, Sacramento, CA 95814. Participants may attend in-person or by webinar. To attend in person, please email and include your name, organization, phone number, City and State. To register by webinar please follow this link.
