Solar module technology provider Solaria and CleanFund Commercial PACE Capital – the leading Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financier – have announced a partnership on building-integrated solar (BIPV) known as SolarPACE.
CleanFund provides US$10 million in PACE financing for a 5MW Cali project, India's Hero Future Energies commissions a 1MW rooftop solar project in Delhi and GameChange Solar deploys ground mount systems in Massachusetts landfills.
The largest Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) bond securitisation has been completed. The securitisation, HERO 2016-2, includes US$305,313,000 in Class A Notes, secured by 13,432 PACE assessments levied on residential properties in 31 counties across the state of California.
The eligibility of energy storage systems for a programme financing energy efficiency and renewables through property tax assessment shows that the technology is maturing rapidly, according to the CEO of the North American arm of Sonnenbatterie.
