C-PACE in Philadelphia

In June 2018, Governor Wolf signed SB 234 into law creating Act 30, making Pennsylvania the 36th state to adopt C-PACE. Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney signed legislation creating the Philadelphia C-PACE program in August 2019. The Philadelphia Energy Authority (PEA) is the Program Administrator for Philadelphia’s C-PACE program. PEA will review and approve applications, manage billing, file liens, and perform other general administrative duties.

C-PACE Projects


On July 17, 2020, the Philadelphia Energy Authority, Twain Financial Partners and SHIFT Capital announced the financial close of the first project in Pennsylvania to use Commercial Property-Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financing. SHIFT Capital is borrowing $1,500,000 in C-PACE financing from Twain Financial to pay for energy and water efficiency upgrades to a new mixed-use development in the Kensington-Harrowgate neighborhood of Philadelphia.
