YGRENE PROGRAM CONTRACTOR
The Ygrene Program at its core, is designed to be a financing program that allows homeowners in the state of California to work with the YGRENE approved contractors in order to become more energy and water efficient, such as installing energy efficient roofing, heating and air conditioning, heat reflective painting, solar, artificial turf, energy efficient window replacement and much more.
How Are Properties Approved
Before any home can be approved for work through YGRENE, they must submit an application.
Without this early approval, any potential work through YGRENE, or having a project funded through a similar PACE program, is dead in the water.
How Are Contractors Chosen?
Contractors need to apply to be accepted as YGRENE contractors. Contractors are required to meet many different standards, with an absolute minimum of requirements including:
– Have a valid business license
– Insured & certified
– In good standing with all state regulatory agencies
– Agreement to follow all additional consumer protections outlined by YGRENE
– Maintain good standing with YGRENE
– Agree to payment after sign off of a project
This isn’t the complete list, but it is a thorough starting point to let a company know the minimum that is expected of them.
Is The Work Reliable?
Since private contractors who are given access to YGRENE contractors must be a fully functioning business with a strong reputation, people who go for improvements via YGRENE can rest easy knowing their work is in good hands. These professionals are licensed, insured, and go through a strong vetting process to make sure they are up to the challenge of providing water efficient plumbing and energy efficient windows, doors, and HVAC systems.

In order for a private contractor to end up on this list of providers, they must have already proven themselves on multiple occasions. Since the pay comes from the HERO program and isn’t paid until the project is done, the contractor has every interest in doing the job right every single time.
Anyone interested in possibly upgrading their home or business should jump online to find their local HERO registered contractor who can guide them through the next step of the process and connect them with approved local YGRENE program contractors who know how to get the work done right.
