Options for Clean Energy Financing Programs
Scalable Solutions for Florida's Local Governments

by Paul D'Arelli, Pierce Jones and Lawrence L. Ostema

In Options for Clean Energy Financing Programs we delve into a deeper analysis of alternative structures for local government energy financing programs, including those not necessarily dependent on PACE, and identify potential scalable models for clean energy financing for local governments. This new publication also lays out the minimum program requirements that will be necessary to attract private investment capital and to create sustainable programs that will deliver community benefits beyond any initial pilot phase or use of initial stimulus or other funding.
