The April ECA Membership Meeting was held as the first in person event in over a year.
The April ECA Membership Meeting was held as the first "in-person" Membership Meeting in over a year! The program was held on Thursday, April 15, 2021 at Maggiano's Banquets in Chicago. The meeting featured a number of industry updates and was highlighted by presentations from Anna Maria Kowalik, SVP Dir. Business Development, Inland Green Capital regarding C-PACE program and Ryan Keller, ComEd Industrial Outreach Service Provider. Watch the event video here.
Ms. Kowalik spoke about the C-PACE Program (link below). C-PACE is an innovative program that provides long-term, fixed-rate, non-recourse financing to private building owners for energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, electric vehicle charging and resiliency components (“PACE Projects”) of any retrofit or new construction project. Property owners may obtain up to 100 percent financing from private PACE capital providers for eligible improvements such as HVAC, lighting and solar photovoltaic (PV) systems and a multitude of other improvements. One of the distinguishing features of C-PACE is that it is secured by a special assessment lien on the property and is repaid as a line item on the property tax bill.
Mr. Keller spoke via Zoom about the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program (link below).
