No matter what kind of commercial property you own or residential property you live in, the Montgomery County Green Bank can help shape the solar financing solution that meets your needs.

For Commercial Property Owners

Commercial Solar Power Purchase Agreement (CSPPA): allows building owners to experience the lower energy cost benefits of solar energy with no out-of-pocket costs and without the burden of owning and maintaining a solar PV system.

Tailored Structured Finance: a customized financing tool that can be adjusted to meet the needs of property owners wishing to own their systems.

For Homeowners

Renewable Energy Financing: affordable loans for installation of solar panels, geothermal, and energy storage on your home.

Access Solar Financing: ownership and rental solar financing options for income-qualified homeowners.

These solar projects financed through the Montgomery County Green Bank help to save energy, lower greenhouse gas emissions, create healthy living and working environments, foster a more resilient economy and environment, and help the County achieve its environmental goals.
