Business Development through C-PACE | Conversations for the Architect
June 16, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) is an innovative financial tool for property owners to obtain low-cost, long-term financing for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water conservation projects that ultimately improve the welfare of Pennsylvania’s building occupants. Architects are in a unique position to encourage their clients to adopt energy efficient design practices thanks to this available funding. This session will give attendees the talking points and case study evidence they need to have that financing conversation with their client at the earliest opportunity.
- Attendees will be familiarized with the counties where the C-PACE program has been adopted and how attendees can assist with the expansion to other counties.
- Attendees will be familiarized with the legislative effort to expand CPACE to other project types such as multi-family housing, and include indoor air quality and building based resiliency improvements.
- Speakers will review what project types and sustainability measures can apply for C-PACE funding, and the timing of the application using specific project examples that vary in size, cost, type, and geographic location..
- Attendees will be able to list the key talking points and case study evidence in order to have early financing conversations with their clients.
