CleanFund's C-PACE Financing

What is PACE Financing?

PACE, or Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy, can finance energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements on commercial properties. 

PACE uses bond proceeds to pay for the upfront costs associated with energy efficiency or renewable energy improvements. 

The capital is repaid over time as a tax assessment. The security provided by the tax assessment results in long term financing and transferability of the repayment obligations to the next property owner.

Lenders and Banks

Lenders can replace part of their mortgage with C-PACE

C-PACE does not accelerate so only annually levied property tax payments, if unpaid, would be considered “senior” to a mortgage in a foreclosure situation.  Lenders will impound property taxes and pay taxes on behalf of their borrowers.


Lower the carbon footprint of your community's built environment
