Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (CPACE) is an innovative low-cost financing tool that can help drive down the cost of capital for renewable energy projects across the state. When used in conjunction with Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating's ZREC-LREC program, a CPACE project should be able to bid in at a lower price… making the developer more likely to win a ZREC-LREC award, and allowing the State to support more projects overall. This is a win-win that every developer and financier in the sector should know about!

About the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority
CEFIA was created by the Connecticut General Assembly in 2011. It is the successor organization to the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund. CEFIA’s mission is to promote, develop and invest in clean energy and energy efficiency projects in order to strengthen Connecticut’s economy, protect community health, improve the environment, and promote a secure energy supply for the state. CEFIA is governed by an 11-member board of directors appointed by the governor and the leadership of the State Legislature. As the nation’s first full-scale clean energy finance authority, CEFIA will leverage public and private funds to drive investment and scale up clean energy deployment in Connecticut.
