Demeter Power offers a suite of innovative financing solutions and tools to solar and renewable energy developers, contractors, building owners and managers. Our project financing is on-demand and predictable – and does not require a corporate or personal guarantee. To date, PACE has only been used to secure loans for property owners. Leases and other “third-party ownership” contract options, like the power purchase agreement (PPA), offer a superior value proposition to most property owners. That’s why Demeter Power pioneered the PACE Lease® and the PACE PPA™. We offer these finance options through our PACE3P® platform, which integrates seamlessly with a local government’s PACE Program.
EcoCity Partners is passionate about promoting energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy.

Either way, ECP will help communities achieve their goals. Organized as an innovative “L3C” – the first “low profit limited liability company” in Florida – ECP’s primary mission is to benefit the communities we serve. We have offices in St. Petersburg and West Palm Beach.
