Nonprofit + Solar = Savings for Temple Israel


Project Profile

“We felt that Energize NY PACE financing was the most cost effective way to finance our new solar system. Without PACE, we would have had to run a huge capital campaign to afford this project. PACE enabled us to meet both our fiscal responsibilities and social justice mission by facilitating this solar installation.”
