In order to use C-PACE financing, a local government must pass an enabling ordinance. We have seen that outreach by potential users of C-PACE has played a critical role in getting localities to move forward with the process. VPA has created template support letters that you can send to your local government officials to support the adoption of C-PACE. Feel free to modify to fit your needs!
