Financing Energy Projects with C-PACE - Energize Denver CASR Small and Medium Buildings Program
Rebates and financial incentives help fund energy efficiency and clean energy building upgrades, but these rebates and incentives often don't cover the entire cost of the upgrades. The C-PACE program, however, allows commercial and industrial building owners to pay for upgrades with no upfront cost by placing a voluntary assessment on the property owner's tax bill. Building owners can pay for the upgrade over an extended period (up to 25 years) and transfer the repayment obligation to a future owner if the building is sold. In this discussion and Q&A session with C-PACE experts, you'll learn about this innovative financing opportunity and hear about real-life examples of projects in Colorado that have utilized the program since its launch in 2016.
