PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) Financing Program
PACE is an affordable way to finance energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water upgrades to residential and commercial buildings. Property owners can finance up to 100% of the project, for up to 30 years, as a tax assessment on their property bill. The assessment obligation may be assumed by the new owner upon property sale, and under most leases, can be shared with tenants. For information check out MCE’s PACE FAQs or visit the MCE Finance Finder Tool.
