Earlier this week, PACE Wisconsin published a press release announcing the revitalization of a former Oscar Mayer site, with the help of PACE financing. Through commercial property assessed clean energy (C-PACE) financing, they were able to assess and make extensive energy efficiency updates to the site. The Edison Energy team was brought on to the project to perform an energy audit, through which they were able to calculate energy savings for the facility, which consists of 285,000 square feet of office space and 300,000 square feet of industrial space. Upon completion of the redevelopment project, the site serve as a commercial activity driver, with the possibility to provide jobs to over 4,000 people.
“The project stakeholders were focused on executing a long-term sustainable renovation that will result in energy efficiency, better indoor air quality, and high-performance buildings. The energy efficiency and water conservation measures will result in lifetime clean energy benefits that not only benefit tenants, but also the community,” noted Farhan Khatri, Regional Manager – Midwest, Edison Energy.
