Energy Efficiency Alliance Policy Conference Success
Congratulations to the Energy Efficiency Alliance, comprising KEEA in Pennsylvania and EEA-NJ in New Jersey, for drawing more than 170 enthusiastic participants and presenters to its Forging the Future policy conference at the Philadelphia Navy Yard in May – the first time back in person since 2019.
Topics ranged from big picture to highly specific policy issues, including:
  • Equity and workforce development challenges
  • Energy efficiency’s role in building decarbonization
  • State specific developments
  • Debates over cost effectiveness calculation
In his closing remarks, Conference Planning Chair and MaGrann’s Vice President of Program & Strategic Development, Ben Adams, noted that "we are in the midst of an existential crisis - Climate change - and at least three societal crises - Housing, Equity, and Public Health - but Energy Efficiency and Building Performance have a critical role in addressing all of them."

NJ PACE is Coming Soon!
. .
NJ EDA is working to finalize guidelines and regulations this summer to roll out the NJ PACE program. Multifamily buildings are eligible property types for retrofit and new construction programs. The department will prioritize retrofit program and follow up with the rules for new construction and refinancing or “recapitalization” soon thereafter. Municipalities will then need to establish local programs through an ordinance, which normally takes a couple of months and scheduled public hearings.

Pennsylvania CPACE Amendments on it’s way to Governor’s Desk
House Bill SB 635 has passed and is awaiting Governor Wolf's signature! This act will take effect 60 days after signing and enable financing for multifamily, resilience, and indoor air quality projects.
. .
We couldn’t be more excited for Pennsylvania and recently testified in Philadelphia City Council hearing, helping to make these policy opportunities available for better housing and quality of living available to Philadelphia.
. .
"We think this bill has the power to unlock the financial barriers to better investments in the health, safety and quality of living for more Philadelphians," said MaGrann Associates Business Development Manager Laila Coelho Reilly.
. .
Philadelphia C-PACE is accepting "intent to submit" forms for multifamily projects. If you have a multifamily project you intend to use C-PACE funds for, the form can be found in the Program Resources page of the website or downloaded directly here.

MaGrann is an approved C-PACE Provider in Philadelphia, please reach out to Laila to discuss leveraging this new resource for better investments in your properties.
