Advantages of C-PACE for contractors
Contractors will be working with an experienced and trusted partner. The Connecticut Green Bank – a national leader in the green energy movement – has extensive experience working with contractors and building owners, and making C-PACE work for them. Building owners feel more comfortable closing projects when they know the Green Bank is a partner.
C-PACE contractors have access to significant sales support. Training sessions and webinars, marketing materials, and technical support make it easier for contractors to find more deals. The Green Bank has the resources and know-how to support contractors at every step. Contractors benefit from technical review services that provide credibility to the energy savings projections that they present to building owners.
The Green Bank recognizes its C-PACE contractors by listing them on the C-PACE website as a C-PACE Registered contractor and by providing them program logos and materials. Contractors performing at the highest level may be eligible to be classified as a C-PACE Advanced contractor, or be recognized with an annual PACEsetter Award.
C-PACE creates value for building owners with energy upgrades that pay for themselves through energy savings. Contractors who offer C-PACE can capitalize on green energy opportunities to build more business. C-PACE contractors gain access to new customers across many industries and building types and can develop deeper, more comprehensive, and more profitable projects.
