About PACE Financing
The Texas PACE program enables multifamily property owners to obtain affordable, long-term financing covering up to 100% of the cost for energy efficiency, water conservation, and onsite generation technologies.
PACE secures private financing for a term equal to the projected useful life of the improvements, typically 10-20 years, resulting in utility cost savings that exceed the amount of the repayment.
You can modernize your facility without fear of over-investment, knowing that if you sell the facility, the PACE loan repayment obligation transfers with the property to the new owner.
Covered improvements include:
- HVAC modification or replacement
- Light fixture modifications such as LED
- Solar panels
- High-efficiency windows or doors
- Automated energy control systems
- Insulation, caulking, weather-stripping or air sealing
- Water use efficiency improvements
- Austin Energy electric customer located in Hays, Travis, or Williamson County
- Project savings exceed loan payments
- Loan term not to exceed useful life of projects
