What Is PACE Financing?

Cities across America are implementing Property-Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) programs to help home owners access low-cost, long-term funding for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water conservation projects. Which means you can pay for home improvements over time with no out-of-pocket expenses.

Details of the PACE financing option:


  • Approved by your city or municipality
  • Financing is based upon equity, not credit score
  • Does not appear on your credit report
  • Is repaid over time via your property tax bill
  • 100% financing, with no out-of-pocket expenses
  • Fixed rates with terms between 5 and 20 years
  • Offers potential tax benefits
  • Transfer options available if you sell the house

The Pace Avenue experience was fantastic!

All the way from the very first meeting through to the completed installation, the Pace Avenue experience was fantastic! The crew they have is organized and responsive. They kept in constant contact, walking us through every step of the process so we never were left wondering what the next step was or if the project was ever going to be completed. Overall very positive experience with their team.

As simple and pain-free as we could’ve hoped for!

Pace Avenue was professional in helping us install both a new roof and solar panels on our home. It was as simple and pain-free as we could’ve hoped for!
