The Commercial Loan for Energy Efficiency and Renewables (“CLEER”) Program provides new options for your customers who want to finance the portion of their energy-focused improvements not covered by Pepco EmPOWER incentives or grants.

The CLEER Program:

  • Provides you with a solution for you customers looking to move forward with the full scope of your proposed energy savings work (and not just the part financed by Pepco’s incentives).
  • Provides your customers with a way to finance a larger list of eligible energy improvements, including Pepco Commercial and Industrial measures PLUS Solar PV, HVAC (gas), and energy storage.
  • AND, CLEER allows your customer to finance 30% more than the cost of Eligible Measure improvements for work done in conjunction with Eligible Measures.
