PACE Milwaukee seeks interest from banks, credit unions, and other capital providers to become qualified to offer PACE Financing. Property owners have the flexibility to select their preferred PACE Lender for a project. The open market model gives property owners access to a range of private lenders who offer competitive rates and financing terms and conditions. The information provided by PACE Lenders will be used to link capital providers, project developers, energy service companies, installers and contractors, energy auditors, engineering firms, utility companies, property owners, and others to develop and fund qualified PACE Projects.
