PACE program Report (5.3 MB)




In December of 2010, Michigan passed legislation which authorizes local governments to create Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) districts to finance efficiency improvements and renewable energy systems to commercial and industrial properties through voluntary special assessments. Building owners benefit by saving energy and the community benefits from the economic stimulus, improved property valuation, increased employment and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Participation is limited to projects that demonstrate energy savings greater than their costs, so that participants' costs before, during and after the PACE assessment will resemble the chart below:
