Greenworks Lands $150M Nuveen Commitment

Greenworks Lending, a provider of Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financing headquartered in Darien, CT, has raised $150 million in committed capital from Nuveen, the investment manager of TIAA. This marks the firm’s third investment from Nuveen in three years.

The deal, which was structured by Guggenheim Securities, LLC, will further increase Greenworks’ available funding for C-PACE assets across the country.

“While the current uncertainty in the market is causing stress within the commercial real estate market, Greenworks continues to be committed to providing a long term, secure financing solution,” said Alexandra Cooley, co-founder and COO of Greenworks.

“As longstanding partners, we are confident in Greenworks’ ability to continue to provide quality assets, even in times of economic uncertainty,” said Nuveen’s Chris Miller. “As founders and leaders of the C-PACE industry, Greenworks has taken center stage in establishing C-PACE as an asset class and propelling its growth nationwide.”
