PACE Funding Group completes its first Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financing

Los Gatos, California (June 10, 2019) – PACE Funding Group, LLC, a California-based specialty finance company with an established record in residential Property Assessed Clean Energy (R-PACE), announced today that it has completed its first Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financing.

PACE Funding Group worked with the Alpine Hills Tennis and Swimming Club, a California nonprofit Corporation located in Portola Valley, California, to finance several clean energy improvements to the property including energy and water efficiency products. The PACE financing part of the project was in the amount of $1.5m and additionally included important seismic upgrades to the buildings.

Robert Giles, CEO of PACE Funding Group said “PACE Funding has been steadily building its residential PACE financing throughout California since 2016, and in Florida since earlier this year. The C-PACE component was a logical and important next step for us in building our business. We are delighted to have been able to assist Alpine Hills and look forward to other similar C-PACE projects in the near future”.

Eric Quade, General Manager of Alpine Hills Tennis and Swimming Club said “Thanks to PACE Funding Group we have been able to complete our extensive and necessary renovations to our property, and continue to provide upgraded facilities for our members while achieving important energy and water efficiencies and seismic updates”.
