PACE: Money For Home Stewardship

Have you wanted to do the right thing for your home but considered the price prohibitive? Here is an opportunity to have your voice heard. Get your local governments on board with this program now. The program isn't financially perfect, but it's a huge step to making profound changes in energy consumption while supporting the economy by creating local green jobs.

A PACE bond is a bond where the proceeds are lent to commercial and residential property owners to finance energy retrofits (efficiency measures and small renewable energy systems) and who then repay their loans over 20 years via an annual assessment on their property tax bill. PACE bonds can be issued by municipal financing districts or finance companies and the proceeds can be typically used to retrofit both commercial and residential properties.

The PACE bond market, in combination with federal loan guarantees, has the potential to dramatically accelerate the energy retrofitting of America's building stock due to the below advantages. It is estimated that the potential for PACE bonds could exceed $500 billion.

PACE Impact: Property tax lien oriented financing that dramatically improves the economics of energy retrofits (efficiency measures and micro renewable energy)
