How C-PACE Can Power Your Energy Potential: A Bar-T Building Tour
June 27 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm$10 – $20
Come join us at a building tour of the Bar-T Mountainside Camp and learn Commercial property assessed clean energy (“C-PACE”) financing can help you achieve your energy potential! C-PACE helps property owners cover 100% of the hard and soft costs of any permanently affixed construction measure that improves the energy efficiency of a property. It can be used for new construction/gut rehabilitation projects as well as retrofits. C-PACE financing is available through the MD-PACE program, a public private partnership that is administered by the MD Clean Energy Center and PACE Financial Servicing.
C-PACE financing was enabled in Maryland by state legislation in 2014. In the past two years, the number of C-PACE projects in Maryland has dramatically increased as property owners learn about this innovative financing mechanism. To date, the MD-PACE has facilitated the investment of over $13 million of energy efficiency improvements in properties across the state.
One of the recipients of this financing is Joe Richardson, owner of the Bar-T Mountainside Camp in Frederick, MD. As a long-time champion for sustainability in Maryland, Joe has had a vision for turning the Bar-T Mountainside farm campus into a smart-energy facility of the future. Bar-T Mountainside hosts summer camps, after-school clubs, and the Mountainside Retreat Center and Ropes Course. Its nonprofit, Mountainside Education and Enrichment, facilitates in-classroom and on-site outdoor environmental education. Joe used C-PACE to finance some of the energy efficiency innovations on his property, including the installation of solar generation capacity. Join us in June to see what it’s all about!
This course is expected to be approved for 1 GBCI general and 1 AIA CEU.
