C-PACE allows building owners to finance qualifying energy-saving and clean energy improvements by placing a voluntary assessment on their property tax bill.
Typical C-PACE measures include the installation of high efficiency lighting, heating ventilation air conditioning upgrades and controls, high efficiency chillers, boilers, furnaces and water heating systems, building envelope improvements, energy management systems and renewable energy systems such as solar and fuel cells.
