City-Run Programs

Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE)

  • The PACE program allows property owners to save energy by using a special property assessment. This program is open to all commercial and industrial properties located within the city of Ann Arbor. Loans range from $10,000 to $350,000 and have up to a ten-year payback. The loans are repaid through a special assessment on the property at the same time property taxes are collected, and offers lower interest rates than most bank loans. Learn more about PACE online, or contact the PACE Administrator at

Loan Fund for Rental Housing

  • ​The Loan Fund for Rental Housing offers eligible rental properties access to low-interest financing for energy efficiency retrofits, such as insulation, air sealing, HVAC upgrades, and select ENERGY STAR products. The program is open to one to four unit rental housing properties located in Washtenaw County. Financing is available for up to $8,000 per property. Interest rates are between 2% and 3.5% with terms between 12 and 36 months. Reduced interest rates are available for certain project types.
