Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) provides affordable, long-term financing to commercial property owners to pay for energy efficiency, water efficiency, and onsite renewable energy upgrades. Commercial property owners receive funding for energy savings upgrades and make repayments through their property tax bill. Ideal for private sector projects, C-PACE can be used for new construction, retrofits, and resiliency efforts. As an additional advantage, soft costs like A/E fees are included.
The seminar will cover the following key elements:
