We have partnered with EIC NY PACE, a not-for-profit local development corporation, to provide Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing.

EIC NY PACE is a low-cost, long-term alternative to traditional loans to fund clean energy projects in commercially-owned buildings, including buildings owned by not-for-profits.
