FAQ

What happens when I sell my property?

As part of the property record, the assessment will be disclosed at the time of property sale, and the remaining unpaid balance of the financed amount may be transferred to the new property owner. For more information, see the info sheet “PACE Assessments and Transferability” from Renew Financial.

Do I need to complete an energy audit of my home?

In certain cases you may want to have a qualified auditor evaluate your home to determine the most cost-effective measures to reduce the home’s energy use, but it is not required. The costs of an energy audit can be financed with PACE financing.

Is there an application fee?

No, there is no fee to apply for Renew Financial PACE programs.

Why do you need my Social Security Number on the application?

As part of the application, Renew Financial requests a credit bureau report for each homeowner. FICO score is NOT used as part of the application, but other elements of the credit report such as mortgage payment history are necessary to determine eligibility for financing.

Can I use any contractor?

In order to participate, contractors must be registered with Renew Financial. As long as contractors meet program requirements, they can register by visiting renewfinancial.com/renewpace. All participating contractors must have a valid and active contractor’s license.

How are tax credits, rebates and other incentives incorporated into PACE financing?

We encourage you to pursue available Federal Investment Tax Credits (ITCs), utility rebates and any other incentives. All or a portion of total incentives may be subtracted from the amount financed under the program; however, it is not required that the financed amount be reduced by the estimated value of the incentives. Once you receive your rebates and tax credits, those funds may be used to pay down the PACE assessment balance; resulting in lower annual PACE assessment payments.
