Project developers

Move more projects across the finish line with attractive financing for your business and nonprofit customers

To many businesses and nonprofits, “energy efficiency” means replacing light bulbs. That’s a great start, but most can benefit from deeper energy retrofits. This is where project developers can step in.

Project developers often:

  • Perform energy assessments
  • Help customers develop an energy savings plan
  • Assist with applications for financing, rebates and certifications

Project developers are not required to have a Contractors State License Board (CSLB) license, but those who do can also enroll as contractors.

Utility implementers are natural project developers

Any measure that qualifies for an investor-owned utility rebate or incentive program is eligible, so utility implementers are a natural fit as project developers.


Who can enroll as a project developer?

  • Energy consultants
  • Nonprofits
  • Utility implementers
  • Local governments
  • Engineering firms
  • Equipment distributors
  • Individuals and organizations who meet the eligibility requirements
