How can YgreneWorks work for me?

What is PACE financing?
Named on of the top 20 “world-changing” ideas by Scientific American magazine, PACE (property assessed clean energy) is a simple and effective way to finance energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades to building. Payments are incorporated into and repaid with a special assessment added to your property tax bill with terms up to 20 years depending on the useful life of the improvement. State and local governments approve PACE financing programs to help create jobs, promote economic development and protect the environment.
While PACE programs are enabled by state legislation and must be approved by your local government, YgreneWorks is not a government program.
Is making payments through my property tax bill a good idea?
YgreneWorks PACE financing payments are approved under Missouri state legislation (HB 1692) and secured by continuing lien on the property. If you sell your property, payments may transfer to the new owner, just like your property taxes.*
