Connecticut Contractor Testimonial

“After enjoying considerable success with Connecticut’s C-PACE program, we are excited to begin working with businesses in Rhode Island under their new C-PACE program. Solar PV systems can provide significant savings, particularly with the 30% investment tax credit, and make businesses more profitable and competitive.”

– Joanna Hunt, Owner, Shagbark Lumber

YMCA-Owner Testimonial

Project: Combined Heat & Power (CHP)

“If you can have a better system that is cleaner, more efficient, that saves you money – that’s exciting. There was no out-of-pocket expense and no recurring expense because the savings from this new energy source will pay for the financing. This isn’t just about the YMCA winning it’s about the community as a whole winning.”

– John Benigni, CEO, Meriden YMCA

Church-Owner Testimonial

Project: Boiler

“I dread October every year – here we go again I have to turn this furnace on. It got to the point where I had to pray it stayed on. When I found out about C-PACE, I just couldn’t believe that it was true. C-PACE has really come to our rescue. I don’t have to worry about that furnace any longer.”

– Bishop John Thompson & Co-Pastor Jenice Lloyd-Thompson, Calvary Temple Center

Recreation-Owner Testimonial

Project: Solar PV, LED lighting

“The C-PACE program is so valuable in terms of the financial aspect of putting solar on your roof.

The analysis was tremendous, the people were wonderful and the process was very quick.”

– Peter Corbett, President & CEO, Insports

Nonprofit-Owner Testimonial

Office-Owner Testimonial

Project: HVAC, controls, windows, VFDs
