Lebanon County passed a resolution to adopt C-PACE in November 2019. The county was approached by a developer looking to use C-PACE financing to support construction of a new 51,286-ft hotel off the exit at Interstate 81 in Jonestown. After two previous public discussions on the program, Chairman Robert J. Phillips called for a motion to approve that was seconded by Commissioner William E. Ames. Jo Ellen Litz spoke briefly in favor of the program and its ability to help commercial property owners save energy and money. The commissioners voted unanimously in favor of the resolution. Upon approving the resolution, Lebanon County also named Sustainable Energy Fund as the Program Administrator.

Through the C-PACE program, Lebanon County commercial businesses, agriculture interests, and nonprofits can finance clean energy and water efficiency projects with long-term and low-cost financing. To learn more about the program and what projects are eligible for financing, please explore our website.

If you have a project and have specific questions, please contact Sustainable Energy Fund at (610) 264-4440 or email cpace@thesef.org.
