Green Jobs Growing in Darien

It is always fulfilling to see legislation and policies that I championed result in new jobs and economic activity.

Last week, Senator Carlo Leone, local officials, Connecticut Green Bank representatives and I visited Jessica Bailey of Darien-based Greenworks Lending to discuss the Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program and the firm's role in economic development.

C-PACE is an innovative program that helps commercial, industrial and multi-family property owners access affordable, long-term financing for smart energy upgrades to their buildings while growing private-sector jobs.
