Energy Saving Meaures
Nuveen Green Capital’s C-PACE financing can cover 100% of the hard and soft costs associated with measures that improve the water and energy performance, and (in some states) resiliency, of a building.
Modern solar arrays can meet most if not all of commercial building demands, particularly when combined with efficiency measures. Additional utility incentives and grants can make going solar with C-PACE yield even greater returns.
Solar for Nonprofits
Collective PACE™ delivers a discount to nonprofits through the upfront monetization of tax incentives by a third party, while simultaneously allowing nonprofits to take advantage of the longer-term, lower-cost financing available through C-PACE.
Boilers, chillers and furnaces
High efficiency boilers and chillers reduce energy costs because they operate 20-40% more efficiently than existing equipment commonly found in older properties.
Automated Building Controls
Adding or updating an automated control system can decrease electricity costs while also decreasing operational and maintenance costs.
New heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment (HVAC) can reach 97%+ efficiencies and reduce utility bills by between 20-50% while improving tenant comfort in all commercial settings.
C-PACE legislation allows for 100% financing of roof replacement when coupled with other energy upgrades, such as solar.
High Efficiency Lighting
A retrofit to LED lighting can lead to significant electrical savings for older buildings, while new construction projects can position themselves as green and conserve capital with C-PACE financing.
Hot Water Heating Systems
Making the switch to high efficiency hot water systems can reduce costs by 30%. Upgrading these systems also conserves water because they are more efficient than traditional hot water heating systems.
Variable Speed Drives
Reduce energy consumption and extend life of equipment by effectively matching a motor’s use to variable operating loads.
Water saving infrastructure can greatly reduce waste from restrooms, heating and cooling, and landscaping. Opportunities to save are abundant in existing structures and are an important element of most new construction.
Storm resiliency measures can keep a building up and running to provide critical services, or can protect mechanical components from damage in the event of a storm via strategic placement and prevention measures.
Insulation, glazing, windows and other such improvments can save commercial buildings between 5-40% on energy costs and make building occupants more comfortable.
