In partnership with TRANE Carolinas, SCCEBA is hosting a roundtable regarding Commercial-Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE). Attendees will hear from Ethan Elser, Vice President of Corporate Development at PACE Equity of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who will make the business case for how C-PACE financing makes it possible for owners of commercial, industrial, multifamily, and nonprofit properties to obtain low-cost, long-term financing for energy efficiency, water conservation, and renewable energy projects.

Our roundtable discussion will provide attendees an opportunity to understand how C-PACE building property upgrades increase property values, protect local tax bases, increase local economic activity, provide improved environmental benefits, and promote the general welfare of communities.

SCCEBA Business Roundtable: CPACE Opportunities for South Carolina

  • Trane

Please join us for SCCEBA's next Business Roundtable featuring David Gabrielson and Jessica Bailey of PACENow where we'll discuss Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (CPACE) financing options for your community. 

REGISTER BY CLICKING HERE

CPACE is an energy efficiency and clean energy financing option for over 1,700 communities in the United States. While South Carolina doesn't have any participating CPACE communities today, we hope that will change with pending legislation introduced to the South Carolina General Assembly earlier this year.  

This Business Roundtable is ideal for Elected Municipal Officials, Community Development Financial Institutions, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Service Providers, Business Leaders and the general public.

The CPACE bills, which have been filed in the South Carolina House of Representatives and Senate can be found by clicking the links below.

S.668 - by Senators Alexander and O'Dell

H. 4043 - by Representatives Loftis and others

We'll be joined by David Gabrielson of PACENow, a non-profit advocate for PACE financing based in Pleasantville, New York and Jessica Bailey of Green Works Lending and PACENow Board Member.

David was introduced to PACE while developing Energize Bedford, an energy efficiency financing program for homes in Bedford, New York, where he has served as an elected Councilman since 2008. Before his careers in energy and politics, David spent over 20 years as an investment banker to state and local governments, financing a wide range of capital facilities and programs at national firms including Credit Suisse First Boston and J.P. Morgan.  David earned a bachelors degree in Economics at the University of California at Berkeley and holds a Masters Degree in Public and Private Management from Yale University.

Jessica led the design and management of the C-PACE program at the CT Green Bank. In its first two years, the program financed $75 million in clean energy projects and executed the first securitization of commercial efficiency assets – more than doubling the volume of PACE transactions between 2013 and 2014. Bailey worked from 2004-2012 at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF), an $800 million foundation based in New York. As the Fund’s program officer for sustainable development, she co-managed a $7 million portfolio of grants focused on combating climate change and promoting clean energy. In 2014, she was named a “Champion of Change” by the White House for solar deployment. The Hartford Business Journal dubbed her a “Green Warrior” for her work to design the successful Connecticut C-PACE program. She sits on the board of the New England Clean Energy Council and PACENow. She received her graduate degree from Yale University and undergraduate from the University of Notre Dame.
