Clean Energy Upgrade Program - California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority (CAEATFA)On August 2, 2011, Governor Jerry Brown signed ABX1 14 (Skinner) into law. ABX1 14 authorizes the CAEATFA to administer a Clean Energy Upgrade Program (Program) using up to $50 million from the funds originally appropriated to the SB 77 PACE Bond Reserve Program. Under this Program, the CAEATFA may provide financial assistance in the forms of credit enhancements to financial institutions providing a loan to finance the installation of distributed generation renewable energy sources, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, or energy or water efficiency improvements on homes or small commercial properties. CAEATFA anticipated establishing a loan loss reserve program to support these loans. CAEATFA also anticipates it will solicit proposals from interested parties who have ideas on additional credit enhancement structures the program should consider to support energy efficiency and renewable energy loans.

The pilot was a two-year case study designed to illustrate the feasibility of banks offering alternatives to high-cost credit products, such as payday loans and fee-based overdraft programs. The pilot, which was completed in the fourth quarter of 2009, resulted in the creation of a template for safe, affordable and feasible small-dollar loans.
