Pleasantville, NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
PACENow is pleased to announce that Jessica Bailey has joined us as a Senior Fellow. Jessica will continue to serve as the Director of C-PACE, Connecticut’s statewide property assessed clean energy (PACE) program administered by the state’s Green Bank (the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority). Her success in making C-PACE a leading provider of commercial PACE financing makes her an expert in program development and implementation.
As a PACENow Senior Fellow, Jessica will be able to share her expertise with people and organizations throughout the U.S. who are making PACE financing available to building owners for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.
Commercial and residential buildings consume forty percent of all energy used in the U.S. Making buildings more energy efficient increases their value, creates jobs, makes America more energy secure, and protects the environment. PACE financing makes deep energy retrofits of commercial and residential properties financially attractive. President Clinton helped launch PACE at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2009 and PACE has now been approved in 31 states, and PACE financing is available in Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, San Francisco, St. Louis, Toledo, and Washington DC. New programs are being developed throughout the U.S.
“We are thrilled to be able to tap Jessica’s knowledge of PACE program implementation”, said David Gabrielson, PACENow’s Executive Director. “She understands legislative process and the program she directs has proven successful at building awareness and demand for PACE financing in Connecticut. PACENow should be a great platform for her to help build PACE Nation throughout the U.S.”
Jeff Tannenbaum, PACENow’s founder, adds, “Jessica Bailey has shown great leadership in the PACE industry through the design and implementation of Connecticut’s highly successful and innovative PACE program. She is a very valuable addition to the PACENow team and will no doubt help us continue to scale this emerging asset class.” Read more.
