In 2018, HBC Energy Capital became a division of NEIF, the National Energy Improvement Fund. Teaming with NEIF means that we can provide both commercial and residential financing specific to energy efficiency improvements. We began as Harcourt Brown & Carey, a consulting firm, and spent years developing financing products and programs to finance clean energy projects. Over time, we came to understand that a gap existed between the many energy efficiency projects being proposed in the market and the capital that exists in droves specifically to serve those projects. We created NEIF Commercial Energy Finance to create the missing connection between projects and capital.
