Financing Energy Improvements using C-PACE

The Colorado Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) Program has created a way to finance energy improvements to commercial buildings. C-PACE enables owners of eligible commercial and industrial buildings to finance up to 100% of energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation eligible improvements through an additional voluntary special assessment on the property tax bill. Financing is provided by private capital providers at competitive rates with repayment terms up to 25 years.

The purpose of the program is to entice building owners to modernize building energy infrastructure, lower energy costs, increase building comfort and asset value – with no upfront costs while enjoying positive cash flow. C-PACE projects also advance public policy goals to create local jobs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase renewable energy deployment.
