As utility companies announce significant increases in energy costs, now is a good time to consider installing energy-conserving improvements in your farm or business. 

CCOF will host a webinar on the State of California’s GoGreen Business Energy Financing program on Tuesday, February 6, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

The GoGreen Business Energy Financing Program offers support for small and medium-sized businesses in California to invest in energy-saving building retrofits and installations, including pump motors, refrigeration, and horticultural lighting. Read a comprehensive list of pre-qualified energy-saving measures organized by category. 

Note that businesses must receive service from an investor-owned utility to be eligible for this program: see this map for coverage.

Through the GoGreen Business program, eligible businesses—both property owners and tenants—can access private financing with exceptional terms for projects from $5,000 to $5 million. Right now, select participating finance companies are offering reduced interest rates—as low as zero percent.

Pre-register for the webinar and you will be emailed a link to join.

Eligible applicants must meet at least one of the following requirements:

  1. Have 100 or fewer employees 
  2. Generate annual revenues of less than $15 million 
  3. Meet Small Business Administration small business size requirements (i.e., annual revenues from $1 million to $41.5 million, depending on industry)

The program is open to cannabis growers as well as other types of agricultural and food businesses.
