Webinar: C-PACE Financing in Virginia

September 27, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join the VAEEC for the next webinar in our ongoing webinar series: Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) Financing in Virginia.

C-PACE financing provides 100% upfront funding for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water efficient projects for commercial, industrial, nonprofit, and multifamily (over four units) buildings, as well as single measures like ground-mounted solar.

This webinar will provide the following:

  • A brief overview of C-PACE, including its legality and case studies
  • Best practices when developing and implementing a program
  • The program administrator’s role
  • Benefits to localities

While this webinar is geared towards localities, we encourage anyone interested in C-PACE to attend. Register now to learn more about this lucrative tool from our lineup of knowledgeable speakers:

  • Scott Dicke, Arlington C-PACE / Sustainable Real Estate Solutions, Inc. (SRS)
  • Susan Elliott, City of Charlottesville
  • William Nusbaum, Williams Mullen

Scott Dicke is Sustainable Real Estate Solutions’ (SRS) C-PACE program director for the Commonwealth  of Virginia, bringing more than 15 years of experience in consulting, information services, energy services, and commercial real estate to the role. SRS partners with state and local governments to administer C-PACE programs nationwide, and as director Scott creates awareness about the program, models various project scenarios to ensure maximum energy efficiency and utility cost savings, and conducts post-project inspections to ensure that energy-saving measures were installed as proposed. SRS has partnered with Arlington County to the launch the first C-PACE program in Virginia (planned for Fall 2017). That program has been designed to enable other Virginia jurisdictions to quickly launch their own C-PACE program at no cost by leveraging the infrastructure put in place in Arlington.

Susan Elliott works on the City of Charlottesville’s Climate Protection Program, which aims to support community-wide greenhouse gas reductions. Providing tools, resources, services, and programs that can assist the City’s residents, businesses, and non-profits to use less energy and switch to cleaner energy sources is a key focus. The City of Charlottesville has been tracking the evolution of C-PACE in Virginia and is working towards implementing a program that is well-suited for a smaller community (of approximately 50,000 residents) with property owners who operate in multiple jurisdictions.

Bill Nusbaum is an experienced commercial real estate and municipal bond attorney with the Norfolk office of Williams Mullen.  Over the past five years, he has been active in promoting PACE at the Virginia General Assembly, on Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy initiatives, and with local economic development professionals and commercial real estate developers.


The webinar is free and open to VAEEC members and other interested parties. Registration is required.
