C-PACER Program: Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy + Resiliency

C-PACER is an innovative financing mechanism to help commercial, industrial, agricultural, and multi-family buildings become more efficient and resilient. The C-PACER program allows owners and developers of eligible properties in Pierce County to obtain long-term financing, at a lower interest rate, for qualifying energy generation, efficiency, water conservation or resiliency projects.  Property owners who make improvements with C-PACER will build healthier and safer places to live, work, and play.
