Commercial developers and real estate owners can use C-PACE to secure low-cost, long-term financing for green building improvements. C-PACE is an attractive financing option, using borrowed capital to pay for up-front costs associated with improving energy efficiency or renewables. But unlike other project finance options, borrowed capital is repaid over 20 to 30 years via tax notices. According to PACENation, more than 2,500 commercial projects have been financed by PACE loans, with an investment exceeding $ 2 billion. Today, more than 37 states have adopted PACE-friendly legislation and policy because of the opportunity to improve the sustainability of buildings, with new legislation pending nationwide.
