  3. PACE-Eligible Improvements

What are PACE (C-PACE) eligible improvements?

Here is CleanFund's FAQ answering all your questions on CPACE.

C-PACE eligible improvements.

Typically, all costs associated with the installation of new components that improve energy and water efficiency of a building. This applies to retrofits, routine upgrades, and, in some jurisdictions like California, new construction. Also, the costs associated with seismic strengthening (in California and Oregon) and storm proofing (in Florida) are eligible. 

The list on this page is intended as a reference tool only, as eligibility requirements may vary according to PACE Program jurisdiction.
