PACE Milwaukee helps commercial property owners affordably finance energy or water efficiency, renewable energy, electric vehicle infrastructure, energy reliability, stormwater controls, and other resiliency upgrades with no up-front, out-of-pocket costs. Lenders and contractors provide the capital and knowledge to make the project a reality.

 Lenders  Contractors  Owners


Process Overview

  1. Select a Contractor: Property owners select registered contractors to develop projects.
  2. Conduct an Energy Assessment: An eligible property owner must obtain an energy assessment of the existing water and/or energy use of relevant systems, or code baseline usage in the case of new construction, and include a modeling of expected monetary savings to be achieved by the project.
  3. Select a Lender: Property owners arrange project financing with a qualified financial institution of their choice.
  4. Apply for Financing: The property owner and PACE Lender apply to the program for PACE Financing.
  5. Complete a Loan Agreement: If approved for financing, the City of Milwaukee, property owner, and PACE Lender enter into a PACE Supplemental Loan Agreement that governs the terms of the PACE Special Charge.
