Our Story

With the humble goal of changing the world building by building, we founded Greenworks Lending in 2015. What began in Connecticut has become a model for the rest of the country and when we left the Connecticut Green Bank to launch Greenworks Lending, it was with the firm conviction that C-PACE financing could rapidly scale clean energy in commercial buildings around the country, resulting in benefits for local businesses, energy security, and the environment. With Greenworks, we are proving that clean energy and energy efficiency investments are smart business decisions that stand on their own for all types of businesses and building owners across the country.

We’ve assembled a team of talented and driven folks that share our mission to become the leading provider of commercial PACE financing in the United States. Our team, which has led the growth of CPACE on main streets across America and in the capital markets, has developed a proprietary financing platform that brings solutions to businesses and building owners. Greenworks’ culture encourages enthusiasm, creativity, grit, collaboration, and an ethic of service as we deepen and grow relationships with borrowers and stakeholders. Our early success and promising trajectory are direct results of our people and our partners. We couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve built – and we’re just getting started!
