PACEsetters are the individuals and organizations that use C-PACE to accelerate the impact of green energy on our environment, economy and communities. Being a PACEsetter means leading by example, being a significant part of the green energy economy, and helping to spark the green energy movement. Connecticut Green Bank’s contractors are all PACEsetters and an integral part of the program’s growth and success.

The Connecticut Green Bank created the annual PACEsetter Awards to acknowledge contractors and other stakeholders who are advancing the green energy movement through C-PACE, and whose leadership establishes a “pace” for others to follow. Read below to find out which contractors have received PACEsetter Awards or check out our contractor case study to see how one company is growing their business and adding jobs with C-PACE.
