C-PACE Project Financing: A Case Study with Mosaic Development Partners
The BIA's Building Innovation Committee hosted a session on how C-PACE financing was successfully used for Golaski Labs, a mixed-use development in Germantown.
Commercial Property-Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) is a financing structure that allows commercial property owners to obtain financing for eligible energy and water savings projects through private capital providers, and to repay the financing through a special assessment similar to a property tax assessment.
By exceeding the current code requirements for energy efficiency, water conservation, and/or installing solar or other renewable energy on-site, this innovative financing tool allows borrowers to save money on operating expenses, replace more expensive equity or mezzanine debt, and improve the overall performance of the building.
C-PACE can be applied to recently completed projects and projects in the planning stages.
