About PACE Financing

Named one of the top 20 “world-changing” ideas by Scientific American magazine, property assessed clean energy (PACE) is a simple, effective way to pay over time for a wide range of energy and water saving, renewable generation and climate resiliency improvements to our built environment.

 

PACE financing enables property owners to make energy efficiency, renewable energy, climate resiliency and water saving improvements to residential, multifamily, commercial and agricultural buildings with 100 percent, no money down PACE financing. Payments are incorporated into and repaid over time through property taxes with terms of up to 30 years, depending on service area and type of improvement. If you sell your property, payments may transfer to the new owner, just like your property taxes. (Property taxes are legally transferable when you sell your property, however, some mortgage lenders may require full repayment (payoff) of any remaining PACE special tax/assessment upon sale or refinance.)
