PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) Financing Program
The Town of Fairfax is pleased to announce an exciting financing option for homeowners and commercial property owners throughout the Town to make building improvements that save energy or water, such as new windows, insulation, solar panels, energy-efficient HVAC equipment, drip irrigation systems, and more. PACE is an affordable, long-term financing option for energy, water, and renewable energy upgrades to buildings and homes that you can repay on your property taxes over a time period up to 20 years. This special assessment on your property tax bill remains with the property in the event of sale. Property owners receive 100% financing of improvement costs and projects can be cash-flow positive from day one. No up-front cash investment is required.
CaliforniaFIRST is authorized to provide PACE in the Town. To learn more, visit their website at https://californiafirst.org or call (844) 589-7953. Beckie Menten of Marin Clean Energy is also available to answer questions about the program: email@example.com or 415.464.6034.
