Financing

Getting the right advice pays for itself.

Triple Bottom Line Foundation (TBL Fund) knows the multifamily housing market inside and out. No one is better positioned to advise property owners and managers on energy financing, tax incentives, utility rebates, and other financing options available to finance your green project.

Certified Energy Financier using mechanisms including PACE, EPC, PPA, and EaaS.

Energy Financing

Energy Performance Contracts (EPC), Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE), Power Purchase Agreements (PPA), and Energy as a Service (EaaS) are energy financing methods that could be off-balance sheet and an alternative to debt.

TBL Fund can use utility savings from reduced energy & water consumption and/or income from clean energy generation to repay the energy financing it provides.

MFAH property owners and DAC can use Energy Financing to pay for today's facility upgrades and clean energy generation projects with tomorrow's cost savings—without tapping into capital budgets.
