C-PACE for Property Owners

C-PACE enables building owners to access flexible, 100% upfront financing to improve their buildings’ value

Maryland property owners are discovering that C-PACE is a powerful tool to fund capital-intensive building retrofit and new construction projects. With no initial cash contribution, property owners may finance 100% of eligible energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation improvements at competitive rates with repayment terms of up to 25 years. This directly impacts the bottom line of any project.

C-PACE Requires 0% Down and Allows Long Payback Periods

  • Building owners can be cash flow positive from day 1
  • Underwriting is focused on the underlying building
  • Accessible to those with Non-Investment Grade Credit

C-PACE Transfers with Title and to Tenants

  • Buildings that may sell before full payoff
  • Buildings where tenants pay energy bill but owner finances upgrades
  • Projects that have longer payback periods

Owners with Tax Appetite Love C-PACE

  • Full realization of tax credits – including solar ITC
  • Accelerated depreciation benefits (MACRS)

Immediate Net Operating Income Improvement

  • Increases NOI – all C-PACE projects are cash flow positive
  • Doesn’t tie up balance sheet with debt
