PACE Financing For All: Learn How Your Business Can Participate in and Benefit from PACE 

About the webinar:

More than 104,000 homes and 750 buildings in the U.S. have received energy saving and generating upgrades using PACE. These projects have resulted in $2.5B of spending and 25,000 new jobs being created. Attend to learn how cities, states, contractors, building owners and many others are benefiting from PACE. Presented by Elyssa Rothe with PACENation.

What is PACE Financing?

Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Financing is a simple and effective way to finance many different types of improvements to new and existing homes and buildings. PACE utilizes low interest financing to cover the full costs of upgrades, and is repaid by property tax assessments that stay with the property for the duration of the loan.  PACE can help home and business owners finance improvements for energy efficiency, solar panels, geothermal heat pumps, water conservation, heating and cooling systems, lighting improvements and more for almost any property – homes, commercial, industrial, non-profit, and agricultural.

What's the Status in North Carolina?

PACE enabling legislation has been in place in North Carolina for seven years through an infrastructure bill with sunsets being extended along the way.  Though the existing legislation allows for PACE Financing programs in theory, the statutory language presents significant barriers to implementing PACE. Given the legal uncertainty in North Carolina combined with low awareness of the program generally, no residential or commercial projects have been completed with PACE Financing in the state.  NCBPA is working with a coalition of partner organizations to draft true PACE Financing legislation in order to allow for projects of all types to begin.
