Direct Pay Bridge Loan – Solar for Community Organizations

The Direct Pay Bridge Loan Solar for Community Organizations is a statewide, short-term loan intended to bridge the 30% direct payment available from the IRS for tax-exempt organizations implementing renewable energy and battery storage projects. This bridge loan can be paired with either the CCEF Energy PAL or the CCEF Clean Conversion Loan for longer-term financing of the remainder of the project cost.
