How is your product or service having a positive social and/or environmental impact?

Greenworks Lending is the nation’s largest provider of Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financing. C-PACE makes it possible for commercial property owners to obtain low-cost, long-term financing for energy efficiency, water-conservation, and renewable energy projects. The program starts with a state-level government policy that classifies clean energy upgrades as a public benefit. These upgrades can be financed with no money down and then repaid as a benefit assessment on the property tax bill over a term that matches the useful life of improvements and/or new construction infrastructure. With the humble goal of changing the world building by building, Greenworks Lending was founded in 2015 with the firm conviction that C-PACE financing could rapidly scale clean energy in commercial buildings around the country, resulting in benefits for local businesses, energy security, and the environment.
