Financing Green Roofs and Green Walls With PACE Financing
Sustainability and Resiliency Finance through Property Tax Assessments
Overcoming the initial cost barrier is one of the biggest hurdles green roof and wall projects face in getting off the ground. Reducing or eliminating this barrier is critical to expanding the adoption of these technologies on a broad scale. This course explores utilizing Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Financing as an alternative financing mechanism for green roofs and walls.
PACE programs allow property owners to finance the up-front cost of energy or other eligible improvements which are then paid back back over time through a voluntary property tax assessment. This course will cover what PACE Financing is, how it works, how you can take advantage of it, and review several case studies and cost benefit analyses of projects which utilized this financing mechanism.
