Products and Services

Nuveen Green Capital’s C-PACE makes clean energy a smart financial decision for commercial property owners. Nuveen Green Capital funds 100% of the hard and soft costs of commercial building upgrades and new construction elements that improve energy, water, and resiliency performance via a public-private financing program called C-PACE (Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy). With C-PACE, repayment is made through the property tax bill over the useful life of the upgrades (often 20 plus years). Cash flow is positive from day one, as energy savings typically cover the cost of repayment.
