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 terms of 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 to join a PACE district. Specific information regarding participating communities, eligibility and cost is available in the links below. For inquiries related to PACE in your area, the department recommends contacting the PACE district in which your community participates; the department does not administer or oversee any PACE programs. Legislation from 2021 instituted additional oversight of PACE by the Department of Commerce and Insurance’s Division of Finance.
