Connecticut’s “Green Bank,” the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA), celebrated recently the successful first year of its nationally-recognized Commercial and Industrial Property Assessed Clean Energy, or C-PACE program, CEFIA announced. The program helps Connecticut commercial, industrial and multi-family property owners access affordable, long-term financing for smart energy upgrades to their buildings.

Over 100 guests, including officials from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), state legislators, municipal leaders, property owners and contractors from across Connecticut attended Tuesday’s ceremony held at Hartford’s Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, a C-PACE program participant.

Building owners from Avon, Bridgeport, Canton, Danbury, Hartford, Killingworth, Meriden, Middletown, Norwalk, Norwich, Simsbury, Trumbull and Windsor were celebrated at the event for being first movers taking advantage of this program.

“A year ago, we announced the launch of this innovative program that helps Connecticut business owners cut down on energy costs and access cleaner, cheaper, more reliable energy,” said Governor Dannel P. Malloy. “I am pleased to see that the C-PACE program is taking off and I commend CEFIA for helping position Connecticut as a national leader in clean energy finance initiatives.”

C-PACE is part of the State’s Energize Connecticut initiative, which help consumers save money and use clean energy. Please visit EnergizeCT.com/c-pace for additional information and opportunities.
