I am thrilled to join Greenworks Lending and bring C-PACE to the New York market.  The low cost, 100% financing of eligible energy efficient improvements makes C-PACE an excellent choice for capex projects and new construction projects, and also allows an owner to extract liquidity on already completed projects.  It is a flexible financing tool that boosts an owner’s IRR, with the added benefits of fueling the local economy, improving the building supply, and of course enabling the reduction of carbon emissions.
