PACE is an innovative loan program that will allow owners of commercial, industrial and nonprofit properties to leverage private capital to finance 100% of efficiency and renewable energy upgrades which are then repaid as a long-term surcharge on their property.  PACE makes energy upgrades accessible, allowing owners to reduce energy and operational costs and improve their property values.
