Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) is a financing mechanism that allows property owners to pay for energy efficiency improvements or renewable energy systems, as authorized by Missouri state statute. PACE financing is a special assessment repaid on the annual property tax bill. This voluntary tax assessment is secured by a lien on the property and in most cases, the assessment and the lien are transferred upon sale. Unlike other financing options, PACE offers secured, fixed rate, up front financing for eligible improvements with repayment up to 20 years. To be eligible for financing, a project must be located in a city or county that has approved an ordinance authorizing it. Specific information regarding participating communities, eligibility and cost is available in the website links below.
