C-PACE financing covered multiple energy efficiency measures of the property’s retrofit project, including lighting, roof insulation, and replacing all windows with View Glass smart windows that adjust to light automatically to help control the temperature inside the building. In addition to the significant energy savings, the C-PACE financed measures will also reduce the property’s greenhouse gas emissions and help the building owner avoid nearly $100k in annual fines under the City’s Local Law 97 of the Climate Mobilization Act.
