FAQ

Will the PACE assessment be eligible for the early payment discount of 1%-4% like the rest of my property taxes?

No, you must pay the full annual amount of your PACE assessment even if you pay your property taxes early.

What is PACE?

PACE allows property owners to finance the installation of energy and water improvements on homes without putting any money down. Property owners pay back the funds that were used to finance their home improvement project as a line item on their property tax bill.

How is PACE different from traditional financing?

PACE is financed through assessments collected on the property tax bill, and the assessment obligation may be assumed by the new owner when the property is sold.

How do I know if my city is participating in a PACE program?

Renew Financial's residential PACE programs are available to property owners in California and Florida. See the PACE coverage map lists of all jurisdictions that have opted in to PACE programs.

Does Renew Financial use taxpayer dollars to fund projects or administer PACE Programs?

No. Renew Financial uses private capital to fund every project. Costs to administer the program are paid by program participants through fees that are rolled into each project’s financing. County tax assessors and tax collectors incur small costs to place each PACE assessment on the tax rolls and to collect and distribute the PACE assessment payments. Counties are reimbursed for these costs through the above-mentioned fees. Cities do not incur any costs as a result of opting in to the program.

Is this a voluntary program?

Yes. Utilizing PACE financing is completely voluntary. Properties and property owners that don't participate remain unaffected.
