Building electrification is complex, but the health, climate & financial returns are enormous; BlocPower helps your community get it done.

Decarbonizing buildings—by replacing fossil fuel-burning furnaces and appliances with modern heat pump technology—improves comfort and indoor air quality while reducing emissions, costs, and energy use. BlocPower can prepare your city for a clean energy future.

BENEFICIAL ELECTRIFICATION

Economic development and climate action through an equity lens: a win-win-win

  • Electrification creates high-paying local jobs, reinforces community investment, and broadens the tent for wealth creation via the clean energy economy
  • Electrification can address issues of economic and environmental justice, benefiting financially underserved communities facing high energy burdens and the negative health effects of indoor air pollution
  • Buildings represent 40% of GhG emissions nationwide and often more in cities; electrification is the solution

How is BlocPower’s lease different than PACE or ESCO

PACE (and Commercial PACE ,or CPACE) is designed to enable a path to finance clean energy improvements. While it does not require a high credit score, it does place lien on the building, resulting in negative outcomes in many cases.
ESCOs target large commercial buildings and portfolios. This portfolio & commercial service leaves unserved market, and also controls customer use, which can lead to a lack of comfort.
BlocPower's lease is designed to make the savings, health benefits, and comfort from electrification accessible to LMI customers.
