Our Past Experience in Sustainable Finance
Affordable Community Energy Services
SCA served as a business and financial advisor to ACE in their partnership with Mercy Housing, a national nonprofit organization providing affordable and low-income housing services, to retrofit many of Mercy’s properties with energy efficiency upgrades. SCA led outreach and engagement with over 75 capital providers to introduce ACE and the project to the stakeholders ultimately helping ACE close its inaugural project with the Reinvestment Fund. The success has been recognized as ‘one of the nation’s first examples of applying the Energy Service Company (ESCO) model to multifamily affordable housing non-profits’ by the Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Initiative.
New York City Environmental Justice Alliance
SCA served as an advisor for NYC-EJA, and its member organizations, to support them in developing and understanding clean energy projects and project finances.

In this workshop SCA also provided an overview of solar photovoltaic terms and definitions, community solar project and financing structures, state and federal tax incentives, and financial modeling.
