The County of Sacramento Community Facilities District No. 2012-1 (Clean Energy CFD) was established in 2012 under State Law SB 555 to finance or refinance the acquisition, installation, and improvement of energy efficiency, water conservation, and renewable energy improvements permanently affixed to or on real property including homes and commercial buildings. Such financing is therefore often described as “Property Assessed Clean Energy” (PACE) financing.
The Clean Energy CFD designates the entire unincorporated area of the County as the Future Annexation Area (see Figure 1) simplifying annexations to the district on a project-by-project basis upon the express willing consent of each property owner. No new properties have been annexed to the district since the Spring of 2016, however property owners wanting to participate in a similar PACE financing program, may contact one of the other PACE Providers authorized to operate in the Unincorporated Area of the County (see PACE Financing Programs).
The County contracts with Ygrene Energy Fund California, LLC (Ygrene) to provide the PACE financing for properties annexed to the Clean Energy CFD so that property owners can pay for their projects using Ygrene-certified contractors. Ygrene also submits to the County, semi-annual reports of activity in accordance with Streets and Highways Code Section 5954 (see Ygrene’s Semi-Annual 5954 Reports). The levy of the Clean Energy CFD special taxes for properties in the district complies with the recorded Notice of Special Tax Lien (Levy 0165). For more information, please contact the Special Districts Section at (916) 874-6525.
