Due to their quantitative financial benefits, Solar Electricity, aka Solar PV, and Battery Storage Installations allow for various forms of financing. We suggest first looking at your own sources of capital, where you may be able to secure the lowest interest rate possible. But we can arrange attractive off-balance sheet, non-recourse financing as well through our trusted partners.
The most common form of financing we offer to Commercial Real Estate owners is a Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy, or C-PACE, loan. The following gives you a high level overall of the benefits and characteristics of a C-PACE so you can decide if it’s worth exploring further.
