Property Assessed Clean Energy (or PACE)
PACE is a financing mechanism that enables low-cost, long-term funding for energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation projects. PACE financing is repaid as an assessment on the property's regular tax bill. PACE can be used for residential, commercial and some non-profits.
The County of Sonoma provides PACE financing through the Sonoma County Energy Independence Program (SCEIP) and is available to property owners within the geographic boundaries of the county.
SCEIP is the longest running PACE program in the Nation and offers the lowest interest and fees when compared to other PACE providers with equivalent terms.
