CSD modeled its Multi-Family Program to improve the energy efficiency of multi-family buildings and achieve greenhouse gas emission reductions. Each building is thoroughly assessed and evaluated both visually and through the use of diagnostic energy audit tools to determine a suite of greenhouse gas reducing energy efficiency and renewable energy measures for installation and living in common areas.
The LIWP Farmworker Housing Component provides no-cost rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) systems and energy efficiency upgrades to low-income farmworker households to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower energy costs for participants. The Farmworker Housing Component is part of CSD's Low-Income Weatherization Program (LIWP) and is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by saving energy and generating clean renewable energy.
The Educational Materials for Professional Organizations Working on Efficiency and Renewable Energy Developments (EMPOWERED) funding program is a collaborative effort across EERE’s Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO), Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO), and Building Technologies Office (BTO), to provide professionals with educational materials and training resources in fields newly interacting with distributed energy resources (DER).
The Small Medium Commercial Business (SMCB) Performance Advisor is a business support resource and a link between local governments, small businesses, and energy efficiency service providers and contractors. It is a “one-stop-shop” to:

The Affordable Multifamily Financing program targets multifamily properties where at least 50% of the units are income restricted.
Like all of the programs highlighted on GoGreen Financing, the Affordable Multifamily Financing program is designed to encourage growth in private market lending and features a credit enhancement to help financing entities mitigate risk. It is designed to leverage and complement existing state and utility efforts to encourage affordable multifamily properties to install energy efficiency retrofits.
The Small Business Financing (SBF) program offers affordable options to help California businesses shrink their energy bills and carbon footprints.
Administered by the State of California with support from the state’s investor-owned utilities, the SBF program is a flexible way to upgrade your business and save.
The Transformative Climate Communities Program offers Planning and Implementation Grants for integrated sets of community-led projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve quality of life.
