Municipalities that Opt-In to Utah’s Statewide C-PACE Program
BENEFIT 1: Technical Assistance for Vetting Proposed Projects
BENEFIT 2: Authorized Service Provider List
Per the C-PACE statute, municipalities must maintain an authorized service provider list. By opting-in to the statewide C-PACE program, they can use OED’s list of authorized service providers. The list is updated as applications are received. For more contractor-related resources, please visit our contractor webpage.
BENEFIT 3: Standardized Program Forms to Issue Bonds
To further reduce the administrative burden on municipalities processing C-PACE projects, municipalities that opt-in get access to the following standardized templates to process a C-PACE project. Please note, the documents below are only templates and municipalities are able to refine these templates as needed.1
BENEFIT 4: Verify Project Installation
As a final benefit, OED will visit the project site and verify the proposed project was completed as expected.
The signing municipality agrees to fulfill its responsibilities under the C-PACE statute: adopt a designation ordinance or resolution to designate a voluntary assessment area, levy the assessment, issue a municipal bond, collect installation payments, and release and discharge assessments.
