Property Assessed Clean Energy - The Future of Home Remodels

 

What is PACE, how does it work, and why does it matter to local contractors? These are some of the questions that we will be answering in our upcoming seminars on May 30th and June 4th. Back in December we wrote a blog post encouraging Placer County homeowners to spread the word about financing their energy efficiency upgrades with PACE. Unfortunately, the word just hasn’t gotten out. Now we are focusing our efforts on reaching out to local contractors, and teaching them how to talk about financing options with their clients, no matter how small or how big the project. It just might be the conversation that boosts a small roof repair into a whole home remodel.

Property Assessed Clean Energy is a financing opportunity for property owners to install energy efficiency upgrades, from insulation to solar photovoltaic systems, at a fixed interest rate with no upfront costs. It can even cover the cost of your energy audit. Sound unbelievable? Then come to our free seminars and become a believer.
