Leverage Innovative Financing

C-PACE (Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy) is an innovative financing tool that allows building owners to make energy improvements that are repaid through a voluntary benefit assessment.

Property owners can access 100% financing and realize positive cash flow while creating more comfortable, modern and efficient buildings.

C-PACE puts comprehensive energy efficiency projects in reach!

*Building owners must use C-PACE financing from the Connecticut Green Bank in order to qualify for the free Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE) offer. Projects must meet all C-PACE program requirements, and additionally must meet requirements of the Charge Up CT Buildings! program including minimum financing amount requirements, energy efficiency project requirements, and program deadlines (for application submission, closing of financing, or other milestones) in order to qualify for the free EVSE offer. These requirements will be outlined in a letter as part of the C-PACE financing process.

Energy saving projects must utilize at least $150,000 in CT Green Bank C-PACE financing with at least 20% of the total project costs going toward non-renewable measures (for example 80% of total project costs be allocated towards a solar PV system as long as the other 20% of total project costs were allocated for energy efficiency / energy conservation measures). Qualifying projects will receive, at no expense, equipment and installation of a dual port pedestal EVSE (or equivalent substitution as determined by Connecticut Green Bank if site conditions or other factors don’t allow). Projects over $400,000 may be eligible to receive a second dual port EVSE and projects over $750,000 may be eligible to receive a third dual port EVSE.
