ISEA is excited to present this webinar on PACE legislation, led by Aaron Kraus of Greenworks Lending and David McEllis of ELPC!

Aaron has more than ten years of experience in the energy policy and markets space. He current serves as the Director of Market Actiation and Policy for Greenworks Lending. Greenworks is a rapidly growing firm focused on financing clean energy, energy efficiency, energy storage and water improvements for the Commercial and Industrial (C&I) segment of the market. The firm utilizes the innovative public/private partnership financing tool of Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) to reduce the cost of capital, create credit enhancement and improve project cash flow. Greenworks is the largest Commercial PACE financing provider in the country.

Prior to Greenworks, he was a Director of Policy and Electricity Markets for SolarCity (now Tesla Motors), one of the largest solar and energy storage developers in North America. He led national policy activities for the Commercial and Industrial (C&I) segment of the market. He focused on legislative and regulatory activities while building broad coalitions of partners and stakeholders. In addition to federal, state and local government affairs matters, he worked on project diligence and market development.

Earlier in his career, he was a member of the energy practice of Booz Allen Hamilton, where he worked on third-party financing mechanisms for renewable and energy efficiency projects, natural gas procurement, and energy-related legislative and budget matters for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Aaron received his graduate degree from Johns Hopkins University and his undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland.

David McEllis is a Government Affairs Representative working on Illinois legislative issues. He previously served in the Office of the Illinois Senate President John J. Cullerton from 2012-2016.
