Program will Lower Energy Costs for CT Manufacturers 

Wednesday, May 25, 2016
The Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) and Connecticut Green Bank have launched a new campaign that provides manufacturers with an innovative way to lower their energy costs. The "Energy on the Line" program will provide supplemental funds to manufacturers who complete a qualifying green energy project using the Green Bank's Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program. C-PACE provides commercial property owners with 100% upfront financing for green energy projects where the energy improvements deliver immediate positive cash flow to the building owner. The supplemental funding (up to $50,000) may be used for any project-related expenses at the discretion of the recipients, thereby reducing the amount of financing required. C-PACE offers predictable, trustworthy energy savings projections. Through Energy on the Line, manufacturers will benefit from support from the Green Bank and its program partners in developing C-PACE projects that are custom tailored to their business's needs.
