Last week, Mesa County commissioners agreed to join the Colorado Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy Program, or C-PACE. The program, which supports developers with financing of clean-energy investments, is a boon to the county’s economic development efforts, making our area more competitive with majority of Colorado counties. Builders have been requesting the program in Mesa County for the last several years.

“Robin Brown, executive director of the Grand Junction Economic Partnership, told commissioners C-PACE will be another tool for keeping Mesa County competitive when it comes to economic development, while local builder Darin Carei said it sends the message for business to come to Mesa County as the county competes with other counties.”
