A low-cost Energy Capital Program that makes economic sense. Long-term funding for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water conservation projects.
How does it work?
The C-PACE program is administered by the local tax authority and funded by private firms. Long-term financing is secured by a parcel tax assessment. The authority collects the payments with their tax bill then passes on the payment to the private lender.
C-PACE proceeds in the capital stack replace high-cost debt, mezzanine, bridge loans or equity. The result is reduced financing expenses and a bigger bottom-line. C-PACE is transferrable upon sale.
Typically, 100% non-recourse financing for the qualified costs is covered. Qualified costs are energy-related improvements confirmed by an energy engineer. Programs vary slightly by State.
It can be combined with utility, local and federal incentive programs.
