What is PACE?
PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) is a way to finance energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation upgrades to homes and buildings. PACE can pay for new efficient and/or renewable energy improvements such as heating and cooling systems, lighting improvements, solar panels, water pumps, insulation and more. This is available for almost any property in Yuba County, e.g., single family, multi-family, commercial, industrial, non-profit and agricultural.
How does PACE work?
The PACE financing is tied to the property rather than the owner. Eligibility is primarily based on property value and equity.
PACE funding is repaid over 5 to 20 years through an assessment or special tax which is added to the property tax bill.
Who can apply for PACE?
Residents and businesses in unincorporated Yuba County.
