Arlington County: Arlington launched the Commonwealth’s first C-PACE program. The initiative is part of the overall Community Energy Plan implementation effort, spearheaded by the County’s ReThink Energy team. Arlington’s C-PACE Program’s Program Administrator contract can be “ridden” by other governments. The contract is designed to enable other Virginia local governments to quickly and efficiently set up their own local C-PACE programs at low cost to the jurisdiction.
