The Ygrene Data Report instantly populates title and financial data from FNF Green LLC for every property in Ygrene's clean energy financing districts, ensuring that properties meet the program's underwriting guidelines. The report enables property owners to quickly finance loans and contractors to easily qualify projects, while Ygrene's state-of-the-art software allows government staff to monitor their energy upgrade financing programs via web, mobile device or in person at Ygrene Energy Centers. The automated system will be available nationally, quickly providing critical information necessary to pre-qualify and approve properties for Ygrene's energy upgrade loans that are repaid through property taxes.

"This exclusive partnership combines our deep property information resources with Ygrene's powerful energy upgrade financing program, marking a great step forward for energy upgrade financing," said Michele Skupic, Vice President and National Sustainability Director of FNF Green LLC. "Making all relevant information immediately available online will dramatically expand participation for property owners and contractors, and will continue to bring these groundbreaking programs to the mainstream."

By entering their address into the Ygrene Property Report, property owners can instantly see the exact amount of available financing to install energy and water efficiency upgrades, renewable energy and, in Florida, wind protection projects. Data provided by FNF Green LLC also enables contractors to quickly pre-qualify their customers, simplifying the process and accelerating clean energy adoption.

Each $100M invested in Ygrene energy upgrade financing programs creates 1,500 jobs and $250M in economic activity, while boosting property values and reducing energy costs.

"Ygrene is committed to making it as easy as possible to invest in energy efficiency upgrades," said Dennis Hunter, Ygrene Chairman. "On top of impressive energy savings and property value enhancements provided by our program, access to FNF Green LLC's extensive data offerings eliminates any wait time for property owners to get started. Strategic partnerships like this are critical to expanding access to energy upgrade financing programs—and delivering tremendous economic value to communities that need them now."
