C-PACE (Commercial Property-Assessed Clean Energy)

C-PACE is a financing tool, authorized by state law, that enables building owners to obtain low-cost, long-term financing for energy efficiency, water conservation and renewable energy projects. Funding is repaid as a tax assessment on the regular property tax bill.

  • All types of energy efficiency projects implemented by TEN qualify for available PACE funding – an assessment added to the property’s tax bill that stays with the building upon sale.
  • This is a strategic option for property owners of commercial buildings, hotels, nursing homes, assisted living, shopping centers, and not-for-profit organizations.
  • TEN has the experience needed to coordinate PACE-qualifying technical and financial project components.
