PACE financing (property assessed clean energy financing) is a means of financing energy efficiency upgrades, disaster resiliency improvements, water conservation measures, or renewable energy upgrades to buildings through property taxes.

This free 12-minute lecture: “Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) Financing” is for contractors (large and small), the sustainability community, and anyone looking for a new way to finance energy projects.
