PACE Energy Model
The PACE Energy Model provides a baseline analysis of a community's energy usage. A town may then use this assessment to create an energy plan.
PACE Solar Canopy Study
In 2021, PACE carried out a groundbreaking study revealing the enormous potential for solar canopies on impervious surfaces to meet a large part of our electricity needs. Helioscope image showing potential for solar canopies at one site in Stratford
HeatSmart Middletown Banner
With help from PACE, the towns of Middletown, Branford, Guilford, and Bethel ran HeatSmart campaigns providing education on energy efficiency and heat pumps.
The Path to 100% Handbook
This handbook has been created to help Connecticut towns transition to 100% clean, renewable energy. The handbook is consistent with the Path to 100% resources found on our website.
Building Data Project
PACE has collected comprehensive building data for many towns in Connecticut. This data will allow us to determine the total energy usage of buildings within a town. The analysis of the data will help towns plan for building energy efficiency.
Vehicle Data Project
PACE has collected comprehensive vehicle data for nearly every town in Connecticut. Analysis of this data provides an overview of fuel types and emissions. This information is useful as towns work to transition their vehicle sector from fossil fuels to renewables.
Community Choice Aggregation
Community Choice Aggregation or CCA is a program which allows municipalities to buy power in bulk on behalf of their citizens. The program doesn't exist in CT yet. However, PACE petitioned PURA to do a study on CCA in CT.
