Tuesday: County Executive Meyer & Energize Delaware to sign D-PACE Agreement to Encourage Green Investments
WILMINGTON, DE – New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer and Energize Delaware Executive Director Tony DePrima will sign an agreement making New Castle County the first county in Delaware to participate in the Delaware Property Assessed Clean Energy (D-PACE) program. This new economic development program encourages owners of commercial businesses to invest in energy efficiency or generate clean energy. County Executive Meyer will be joined by Executive Director of Energize Delaware Dr. Tony DePrima, and Scott Johnson of McConnell Johnson Real Estate.
D-PACE is designed to help qualifying commercial, industrial, agricultural, nonprofit and multifamily (with five or more units) property owners access long-term financing for the installation of qualifying energy improvements. Such improvements may include any construction, renovation or retrofitting of energy efficient technology, clean energy systems, or qualifying waste heat recovery technologies that are permanently fixed to qualifying commercial property.
