This is the first rating on C-PACE assets under the new and recently released DBRS Morningstar rating methodology.
"These ratings are a testament to the strength of our underwriting platform and the growing importance of C-PACE as an asset class," said Petros PACE Finance Co-Founder and CFO Jim Stanislaus.
