Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE)

PACE is a financing mechanism that allows property owners (both residential and commercial) to pay for energy efficiency, water conservation, and renewable energy generation improvements through a new line-item on their property tax bills.  PACE financing makes energy and water efficiency projects more manageable because there are no upfront costs to property owners and they repay over time (up to 20 or 25 years), at lower rates.  If a property owner were to relocate during the repayment period, the owner has the option to pay off the remaining balance upon sale of the property or pass on the remaining repayment obligations to the new owner.

The Martinez City Council has authorized the City to participate in the following PACE financing programs:
