CBJ Energy, LLC

CBJ Energy makes it easy for property owners to save money and make their buildings more valuable by adopting energy efficiency and renewable energy, with no upfront costs, through the Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE).


Using C-PACE, building owners can now finance energy improvements via a line item on the property tax bill. All costs, including soft costs, such as project management, quality control, commissioning and more, can be financed. Building owners gain ownership of any and all project outputs so any depreciation, tax benefits, and rebates generated by the project go to the owner.

The resulting reduction in utility costs is typically greater than the increase to the property tax bill – hence an immediate improvement in cash flow with no investment. 


Headquartered in Baltimore, CBJ Energy firmly believes that property owners deserve an easy and economical way to make their buildings better. It is our mission to make it easy for property owners to adopt - with no upfront costs - cost-effective energy efficiency, water efficiency, and renewable energy investments for their commercial, industrial, and multi-family properties.

CBJ Energy partner with best-in-class specialists to manage all aspects of C-PACE efficiency or renewable energy projects:

  • Identify PACE-eligible energy or water upgrades
  • Arrange capital financing (with payment plans up to 20 years)
  • Arrange and manage contractors .
  • Ensure project meets program compliance requirements.
