PACE Wisconsin is growing with more counties and lenders in the program. Sauk County was the latest to adopt the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program that now serves nearly one third of Wisconsin’s 72 counties. The 23 PACE counties include: Ashland, Bayfield, Brown, Chippewa, Dane, Door, Douglas, Dunn, Eau Claire, Fond du Lac, Iowa, Jefferson, La Crosse, Manitowoc, Marathon, Ozaukee, Portage, Racine, Sauk, Sheboygan, St. Croix and Washington, and Wood.
PACE, property assessed clean energy, is a way for counties to help developers and building owners implement energy efficient building solutions. Local lenders finance 100% of upgrades for commercial energy efficiency, solar, and water conservation through a special municipal charge. There are now six lenders that bring a large amount of capital to fund PACE projects ranging from $75,000 to $20 million. The first few projects to address energy efficiency upgrades are going through the development process now.
