Kids First Sports Center, a 108,000 square foot multi-use facility including gymnastics, soccer, and basketball has just put its massive roof to work to generate a great deal of its total electrical needs. Such projects are not a new concept within the sports industry, but the method of finance deployed by owner Jefferey Metzger is new and becoming available in a growing number of states. The 250kW solar array and additional energy savings measures installed by Cincinnati-based National Energy Control have been financed by Greenworks Lending through a public private partnership offered called C-PACE, which stands for Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy.
