C-PACE

Keeping your building occupants comfortable is your top priority and ours. C-PACE allows you to do that with no money out of pocket. Our team partners with you to help guide your project from qualification to construction.

What is C-PACE?

Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) enables building owners to fund 100% of the cost of upgrades to any part of a building where energy efficiency and water conservation are applicable. The long term financing (up to 20 years) allows projects to be cash flow positive with no upfront capital required. The brilliance of this being setup as an assessment is that, unlike traditional loans where the owner bears all the costs, the C-PACE assessment costs can be passed through to the tenant. Contact LONG today to see if your project, whether new construction or an existing building, is eligible and explore how you can leverage the power of C-PACE.

Prequalify Your Project

C-PACE projects are building based. LONG will help you to determine if your building qualifies for C-PACE. Our extensive knowledge of buildings allows our team to prequalify your building with a feasibility study based on a building walk through. At this phase, we will prequalify your building with the State Administrator as well as financially.

How It Works

Owners repay the cost of eligible improvements over a period of up to 20 years through assessment (similar to a utility assessment). The resulting energy savings typically outweighs the annual assessment payment, thereby enabling cash flow positive projects. Because the assessment is tied to the property, the repayment obligation automatically transfers to the next owner if the property is sold.

  • 100% financing
  • No out-of-pocket expense
  • Long term (up to 20 years)
  • Lower energy costs
  • Cash flow positive projects
  • No personal guarantees
  • Competitive rates and terms
  • Owner retains all tax incentives
  • Automatic transfer upon sale
  • Preserves capital for core business
