PACE Loans for Energy Upgrades


PACE stands for Property Assessed Clean Energy

The PACE Loan program offers financing for large-scale energy and water efficiency upgrades. Property owners can receive 100% financing for these upgrades, repaid as a property tax assessment for up to 25 years. The interest portion of the payment can be tax deductible.
Energy efficiency improvements work best as whole-house projects. PACE encourages this concept, and thus is meant for large-scale work (upwards of $50,000). But some homeowners are hesitant to invest so heavily in their home, especially if they plan on moving in the future. The PACE program solves this problem by allowing the remaining balance to be transferred to a new owner.

PACE offers a way to increase property value, decrease utility costs, and help the environment, with no upfront cost.
The program is designed to promote energy efficiency upgrades and create jobs, while remaining tax neutral, meaning it will not affect a county’s general fund.
The programs vary by state and region. When you apply for Hero or Renew Financial CaliforniaFIRST, your location will determine eligibility and specific details.
