SRS has launched a powerful cloud-based app that enables HVAC contractors and energy efficiency project developers, in real time, to estimate energy cost savings and calculate financial impacts of their projects. Powered by proprietary data, predictive analytics and proven technology, Energy Performance Improvement Calculator (EPIC™) incorporates data collected by SRS over the last decade from thousands of energy improvement projects nationwide. EPIC-generated reports, appended to project proposals can transform an unwelcome capital expense to a compelling investment opportunity.

Our unique PACEworx™ Platform provides consistency, quality control and transparency across the entire project life cycle – ensuring that all stakeholder underwriting requirements are met and that projects accelerate to a successful close.

To accelerate projects through each step in the life cycle,  SRS deploys a standardized training protocol that provides step-by-step instruction on the workflow of C-PACE and introduces a suite of tools, reports and support services designed to generate building owner enthusiasm for a specific project.

SRS accelerates project origination through contractor channel initiatives.

  • Owner authorizes contractor for site visit, upon SRS pre-qualification
  • Contractor uses SRS tools to optimize project for C-PACE financing
  • SRS conducts project eligibility and savings projections technical review on behalf of agency sponsor (Government or Non-Profit)


SRS tools & reports ensure stakeholder underwriting requirements are met.

  • Owner approves project scope and cost, post SRS technical underwriting
  • Owner, with SRS technical support, obtains mortgage holder consent
  • SRS supports owner’s “best fit” capital provider selection


SRS prepares Project Finance Report to facilitate finance closing.

  • Capital provider and owner execute finance agreement
  • SRS coordinates with local tax office to place PACE assessment
  • Contractor commences construction, SRS oversees project commissioning


C-PACE projects must work for all three project Gatekeepers: Contractors, who have a desire to sell comprehensive projects, Owners and Mortgage Holders — both typically skeptical of the projected energy savings. Gaining consensus requires a skilled, independent third party, with the technical and financial knowledge to deliver projects that meet, or exceed, the objectives of each Gatekeeper.





Contractor involvement and motivation is the most crucial element in the success of every C-PACE program, especially during the critical 2-3 year launch and growth period. SRS provides outreach, education and training, including workshops and webinars to educate and engage Contractors on the benefits of C-PACE financing. Following the workshops, our Technical Support Services (TSS) team enables contractors with a suite of tools, reports and support services to sustain momentum and accelerate C-PACE market adoption by advancing Contractor projects.

One major barrier to closing C-PACE project financings is often the Building Owners’ lack of confidence in the Contractor’s projected energy savings-based projects. To meet the underwriting requirements of skeptical building owners, our PACEworx™ Platform enables a technically sound transparent project scenario development and optimization process which allows Contractors to address all of the Building Owners’ “what if’s”— improving confidence in the project economics.

Building Owner’s seeking to take advantage of C-PACE financing need to secure the consent of the bank holding the first mortgage — although many bank officers are unfamiliar with C-PACE and may not have the necessary documentation to support such consent. To successfully facilitate the Mortgage Holder’s consent, SRS’s Mortgage Holder Consent Report includes the key financial and technical data required to assess the project’s impact on the building owner’s mortgage repayment ability and collateral value.


SRS provides C-PACE programs with a streamlined, standardized, technically-sound and transparent underwriting methodology that has earned the confidence of contractors, building owners, mortgage holders and capital providers around the country. This proven project underwriting methodology has facilitated the development of over $400 million of C-PACE projects nationwide – a level unmatched in the industry.

The SRS Platform is essential

for the management of an inherently data-intensive, complicated process. By standardizing the underwriting, SRS has provided capital providers with a high-degree of confidence in the project underwriting data, enabling the sale of PACE portfolios.
