pace (Property Assessed Clean Energy)

What is PACE Financing?The PACE commercial program is an innovative, unique alternative form of financing that can provide commercial property owners with access to capital for a wide range of energy efficiency, water savings, as well as renewable energy projects. The program can also be used for older buildings in need of major upgrades such as seismic retrofit, lighting, roofs and other envelope related work.

The SGVEP, on behalf of the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments, is working to provide outreach and technical assistance for the LACC PACE (“Los Angeles County Commercial PACE”) program to building owners and businesses throughout the SGV.

  • Asset modernization leading to competitive advantage and increased property value
  • Lower operating costs resulting in net operating income (NOI) and profit enhancement
