​Commercial Savings​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The commercial and industrial sector makes up approximately  25% of Ann Arbor’s 2010 community emissions and presents many opportunities for improving energy efficiency.

Making smart investments in your property will decrease your energy costs and increase your property's value. This includes heating and cooling, lighting, appliances and equipment, water fixtures and renewable energy. Benefits beyond energy savings include improved productivity and less tenant turnover.​​​

PACE Program​

Ann Arbor's PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) program allows property own​​ers to save energy using a special property assessment. This financing has several potential benefits to commercial property owners over traditional loan products. Traditional financing programs are typically limited by short repayment periods, high or variable interest rates, stringent credit requirements that do not account for savings from improved energy efficiency, lack of equity and limited availability.​

PACE special assessments offer low fixed rates, eligibility determined by property value and longer repayment terms. If you want to update your building at a low fixed interest rate with a 10-year term, you want to PACE yourself. Not sure if you qualify for A2 PACE but interested in financing an energy efficiency project?

Note: The City of Ann Arbor is not actively promoting this project but it still may be available for eligible properties. Contact the Ann Arbor Energy Office for more details at energy@a2gov.org​.
