C-PACE Improves Properties

Attractive financing features make C-PACE a valuable tool for boosting building performance, project returns, and sustainability.

C-PACE financing provides low cost capital to cover all costs associated with energy and water-saving building measures and, in some states, resiliency improvements. Eligibility varies by location. An energy audit can determine the scope of C-PACE-eligible upgrades for a project.

Energy Efficiency

Lower utility and maintenance expenses while reducing carbon footprints, with building improvements that reduce energy consumption and demand on the power grid. Eligible measures include but are not limited to the following:

  • HVAC systems
  • Boilers & chillers
  • Building automation & control systems
  • LED lighting
  • Building envelope including insulation, windows, doors & roofing
  • Motors & drives

Water Efficiency

Curb water usage by upgrading systems for plumbing, irrigation and more. Eligible measures include but are not limited to the following:

  • Low-flow plumbing fixtures
  • Irrigation sensors/controls
  • Greywater/wastewater recovery
  • Water-efficient appliances(permanently affixed)
  • Rainwater harvesting

Renewable Energy

Improve performance and sustainability for a project by installing renewable energy systems. Eligible measures include but are not limited to the following:

  • Solar/solar thermal
  • Fuel cells
  • Cogeneration
  • Geothermal
  • Wind

Resiliency

Improve building resiliency to natural disasters. C-PACE financing can be used for seismic upgrades in California and Oregon and wind-hardening upgrades are eligible in Florida.

  • Seismic
  • Wind-hardening
  • Microgrids
Eligible upgrades can vary by program
