Funding Your Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy Solutions 

What is C-PACE

C-PACE or Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy is a long term financing tool for commercial property owners to pay for energy efficiency upgrades

A City or County creates a land secured financing district. Property owners sign up for financing to install energy projects. The lender then provides funds to pay for project. 

Property Owners then install upgrades to their facilities then the C-PACE loan is paid back through a special assessment on their property taxes 

Local Government 

establishes PACE Program. After approval City or County will create C-PACE Financing District  

Property owner completes energy audit to indentify energy savings. Lender provides capital to pay for approved energy projects. 

Property owner receives capital and hires contractors to install energy efficiency projects

Owners use energy

savings to repay

special assessment against the property through property tax bill
