On June 28, Ygrene Energy Fund, announced that newly appointed Mark Colby, general manager of solar and storage, will lead the effort to bring new, innovative financial products to the solar and energy storage markets as the PACE financing provider expands its award-winning YgreneWorks™ program nationally.

Toward that end, we are creating innovative financial products to better meet a broader customer base.
