PACE can support a steady stream of work and revenue to registered contractors. Offering PACE as a finance option to clients allows contractors to add value by proposing a proven way to fund building upgrades. The nature of PACE allows for immediate financing for qualified upgrades for property owners, allowing projects to move ahead rather than having to wait for future funding to become available. Registered professionals can market themselves as "registered", which indicates that they can:
- Scope a project or portion of a project that meets program requirements.
- Introduce the project to Chicago PACE and capital provider(s) in a manner that will facilitate a smooth funding process.
Status as a registered professional can thus improve client satisfaction and differentiate professional firms operating in a competitive environment.
