Join Solar Washington in this presentation scheduled for Thursday, March 18 at 12:00 noon (Pacific) and titled, Explaining the Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy and Resilience (C-PACER) Program. Justifying the up-front cost of a new solar install is often difficult. Fortunately, the state of Washington has now enabled a new form of financing that allows commercial property owners to spread the cost over a long time horizon, effectively letting the energy savings service the expense. Known as Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy and Resilience (C-PACER), this financing may be the difference between a solar dream and panels on the roof of your business.
