EKN Development Group
“Once CleanFund educated us on C-PACE, it was just a matter of selecting our first project. We view C-PACE as a valuable financing tool that complements our other sources of capital,” said Jason Bass, Director of Finance at EKN Development Group, the lead member of the project joint venture. Newport Beach, CA-based EKN has over 1,500 hotel rooms currently under development including properties in Minnesota, San Francisco, Monterey and Italy.
San Rafael-based Seagate Properties partners with CleanFund for upgrades to two of their Marin office buildings. Seagate’s portfolio currently includes 2,500 apartments in the Denver area and about 2 million square feet of commercial, office, retail and industrial space in the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento areas.
CleanFund and GreenFinanceSF, San Francisco’s PACE program, joined with vendor Johnson Controls, a provider of building energy efficiency projects and services, and Prologis, an owner and operator of industrial real estate, in a project to upgrade the buildings lighting system, add PV and improve energy efficiency.
Cypress Properties Group
Chris Robbins, Managing Director at CleanFund shows how the company financed $1.8 million of energy efficiency upgrades at 644 Broadway on the edge of San Francisco’s historic Chinatown, as part of a complete redevelopment of a four story mixed-use building owned by Bay Area based Cypress Properties Group.
Partnering with CleanFund allowed Borrego Solar to offer the most attractive financing option for their client Pacific Ethanol. Offering the highest NPV, the long term length of CleanFund's SolarPACE product delivered the strongest near-term cash flow when compared to leases, PPAs, or cash purchase.
