Sonoma Mountain Village

$1.6 Million   |   20 Year Term   |   1.1 MW Solar PV

1.1 MW Solar to Sonoma Mixed Use

SOMO Village is an internationally recognized and award winning, mixed-use, solar-powered, zero-waste 200-acre redevelopment in southern Sonoma County in the City of Rohnert Park, California. Sonoma Mountain Village is the first One Planet Community in North America and has received LEED-ND Platinum status from the US Green Building Council for its project plan

The Challenge
As the first C-PACE project ever to be privately financed, CleanFund educated the owners, the lenders, the county of Sonoma, and the developers on PACE financing.

The Solution
CleanFund structured and financed the first owner-arranged C-PACE bond sale in California and replaced funds that would have come out of the County’s Treasury.

The Result
1.1 MW solar PV system allows SOMO Village to cover 100% of its electric needs from on-site renewable power and helped to make it the first One Planet Community in North America.

“We were delighted to have CleanFund execute financing for additional solar capacity for our buildings at SOMO Village. This project demonstrates how C-PACE finance allows renewable energy solutions to make compelling economic sense for commercial building owners today.”
