C-PACE information for State and Local Governments
The U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy prepared a useful and accurate "fact sheet for State and Local Governments" for the purpose of highlighting the key advantages of enabling and using C-PACE financing on a State and local level.

Depending on the authorizing legislation, C-PACE may be available to industrial, commercial, agricultural, multi-family, and non-profit/religious properties*
*Single family residential is excluded from C-PACE and is subject to different lending regulations. For more information, see the U.S. DOE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Residential PACE Financing.
C-PACE Terms tend to be long (20-30 years) because repayment is secured by the tax assessment. C-PACE can be transferred to the next property owner (traditional commercial loans are usually 7-10 years).
C-PACE Interest rates are competitive since the tax assessment mechanism is considered secure and low-risk; fees associated with program administration or other services are common.
C-PACE programs may be organized at the local, multi-jurisdictional, or statewide levels.
Public or private funds may be used to finance property improvements. Private capital from regional banks or national specialty lenders is increasingly common as programs mature and grow to scale, while many programs have leveraged public funding (e.g., through bonding).
C-PACE financing may include commercial property owners, capital providers, a program administrator, the mortgage holder (e.g., bank), the contractor providing retrofits, a tax assessor, and others.
Mortgage holder consent is a best practice or requirement for most C-PACE programs.
