Our goal is simple – lower barriers to energy improvements by making the financing of green energy upgrades easy and affordable. We offer financing solutions at every step of the process – from planning to installation to performance monitoring – to make improving building performance simpler. 

Green energy upgrades help owners improve their properties and reduce operating costs. Tenants benefit from increased comfort and a healthier living environment.  From saving money to saving the environment, the benefits of energy efficient buildings are clear. 


 The Catalyst Loan provides construction and term financing to help owners improve the energy performance, health & safety, resilience, and economics of multifamily and nonprofit-owned buildings. Catalyst is also designed to help owners decarbonize their buildings and meet any local building energy requirements and performance standards. It provides alternatively secured financing that can be easily used in combination with existing mortgages or other funding that may put restrictions on adding new debt. 

Catalyst can be used for the following eligible costs: 

  • Energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements 
  • Resiliency measures 
  • Health and safety remediation 
  • Building energy performance monitoring and verification 

Loans are repaid from energy and operating cost savings.
