Would you like to make your home more energy efficient and better protected from storms but are unsure of how to pay for those types of improvements? The Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program is a way for residential and commercial property owners to make improvements to their properties without the barrier of high upfront costs.
The PACE program allows property owners to pay off energy efficient and/or green energy improvements through an assessment on their property tax bill.
PACE can be used to fund energy efficiency improvements, wind resistance measures, and renewable electricity generation including solar water heating systems, air sealing and ventilation systems, efficient doors and windows, insulation, “cool” roofs, water heaters, pool pumps, lighting fixtures and controls, storm shutters, wind resistant shingles, high impact windows and doors, photovoltaic systems, EV charging, and small wind turbines.
Property owners interested in participating in PACE will need to work with one of three PACE providers to determine eligibility. Once eligible and with the assistance of the provider, owners will select a contractor, determining the project scope, cost and secure financing. The improvements will be then installed and owners will be able to start enjoying their new energy efficient, wind resistant, clean energy generating home!
