Frequently Asked Questions


About C-PACE


What‌ ‌is‌ ‌PACE‌ ‌(Property‌ ‌Assessed‌ ‌Clean‌ ‌Energy)?‌ ‌ ‌

It’s‌ ‌a‌ ‌tool‌ ‌that‌ ‌can‌ ‌finance‌ ‌energy‌ ‌efficiency‌ ‌and‌ ‌renewable‌ ‌energy‌ ‌improvements‌ ‌on‌ ‌commercial‌ ‌property.‌ ‌Unlike‌ ‌other‌ ‌project‌ ‌financing,‌ ‌the‌ ‌borrowed‌ ‌capital‌ ‌is‌ ‌repaid‌ ‌over‌ ‌time‌ ‌via‌ ‌a‌ ‌voluntary‌ ‌tax‌ ‌assessment.‌ ‌

What‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌difference‌ ‌from‌ ‌a‌ ‌traditional‌ ‌loan‌ ‌and‌ ‌a‌ ‌PACE‌ ‌loan?‌ ‌ ‌

The‌ ‌interest‌ ‌rate‌ ‌from‌ ‌a‌ ‌PACE‌ ‌loan‌ ‌is‌ ‌deductible,‌ ‌while‌ ‌the‌ ‌interest‌ ‌rate‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌traditional‌ ‌loan‌ ‌is‌ ‌not.‌ ‌ ‌

Which Improvements can you fund?

Can‌ ‌I‌ ‌include‌ ‌other‌ ‌improvements‌ ‌to‌ ‌my‌ ‌financing?‌ ‌ ‌

Yes,‌ ‌you‌ ‌can‌ ‌include‌ ‌a‌ ‌variety‌ ‌of‌ ‌energy‌ ‌efficient‌ ‌improvements.‌ ‌ ‌

Can I use multiple contractors for the improvements?

Yes, you can select the contractors that will work on your property, we will sign them on our program and approve them, so we can fund the project for them.
