Today (07/12/2010), MVC and its partners celebrated a huge victory for clean energy as Governor Nixon signed omnibus bill HB 1692, which includes Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE), into law. With your help, we were able to get this measure passed in the Missouri Legislature and onto the governor’s desk.
Property Assessed Clean Energy, or PACE, is a voluntary program that pays property owners up to 100% of upfront costs for energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades for homes and businesses. Participating property owners then pay back the loan through a 20-year property tax assessment.
While removing the upfront cost of efficiency and renewable energy improvements, PACE also creates jobs, reduces the property owners’ energy bills and lowers greenhouse gas emissions. And, PACE policies incur little to no cost to cities and counties.
