The town is participating in a state program that helps property owners obtain financing for improvements to their buildings that make them more energy efficient.
Avon is among dozens of municipalities in the state that are participating in the Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program. The town council approved the town’s participation in April and officials began promoting it this week. That included issuing a press release and Town Manager Brandon Robertson said in an interview that the town will reach out to local businesses to let them know the benefit is available.
In towns that are participating in the C-PACE program, commercial, industrial and multi-family property owners can obtain low-cost financing through the state to upgrade their properties and make them more energy efficient or use clean energy sources, according to a description of it put out by the town. Payments on the financing would be included with property owners’ tax bills. The town would collect them and turn the money over to the state. Read more.
