We invest in energy efficiency solutions that generate permanent cost savings for our clients and long term cashflows for Hannon Armstrong. Building improvements include upgraded lighting, thermostats, air conditioning systems, water fixtures and insulation. Hannon Armstrong funds the upfront capital requirements and the cost savings typically exceed the required repayments. Typically, our financing is secured by the installed improvements and supported by a performance guarantee from the energy service companies that upgrade the buildings.
In 2016, Hannon Armstrong announced a partnership with CounterPointe Sustainable Real Estate, LLC to work jointly on C-PACE opportunities. The partnership will combine Hannon Armstrong’s deep experience and relationship base in the efficiency and renewable energy markets with CounterPointe’s PACE relationships and comprehensive knowledge of commercial real estate finance.
