Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) is an innovative way to finance building upgrades including renewable energy resources. Property owners interested in converting to a green building can receive 100% financing, repaid as a property tax assessment for up to 20 years. By eliminating upfront costs, providing low-cost, long-term financing, and making it easy for building owners to transfer repayment obligations to a new owner upon sale, the PACE program overcomes challenges that have hindered adoption of energy efficiency and green construction.
