Our proprietary software offers turnkey 360° programs that removes the administrative burden and manages all phases of PACE financing.

What is PACE?
Property Assessed Clean Energy
PACE is a public/private partnership designed to allow property owners to finance building improvements through voluntary special tax assessments placed on the property by a state economic development agency.
A primary goal of PACE is to lower the cost of entry for sustainability, resiliency and renewable energy improvements, thereby increasing economic activity, creating jobs, reducing environmental pollution and improving the built environment. PACE programs achieve this goal by harnessing private capital to finance 100% of the energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, and resiliency improvements as well as related costs of qualified projects.
National Acclaim for Chicago PACE Program
World Changing Ideas: Politics and Policy
Chicago PACE earned an honorable mention for “Removing Obstacles to Reducing Carbon: Chicago PACE Makes $20.25 million First Impression.”
The awarded honor was based the impact made by the PACE program by making green investments equitably distributed and economically viable. A substantial focus of the ChicagoPACE program is encouraging minority and women owned businesses to participate supporting the tenets of energy justice in the transition to a renewable energy future.
The Chicago PACE Program was launched quickly and to great success due to exemplary efforts made by Chicago Department of Planning and Development , Counterpointe Sustainable Real Estate LLC, Loop Capital Markets, Illinois Finance Authority, and the many individuals working at each organization for their contributions to the implementation of the ChicagoPACE Program.
Counterpointe Energy Solutions’ role as a program administrator with Loop Capital is helping grow a robust Commercial PACE program in the city during a time when attracting private capital to invest in energy savings is at a premium.
Counterpointe Energy Solutions’ role as a program administrator in the CSCDA program has helped meet the goals of California’s PACE legislation while supporting changes such as additional resiliency measures along the way.
