The average commercial building wastes 30% of the energy it consumes. PACE Financing offers low-cost, long-term financing for measures to conserve energy, reduce operating expenses, and increase property values. Eligible properties include commercial, multi-family (5+ units), non-profit, agriculture, warehousing, hospitals, industrial, manufacturing, and hospitality. Use financing for energy and water efficiency, renewable energy and energy reliability, stormwater controls, and other resiliency measures.
