Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Program


PACE is available in Palm Beach County

The County's commitment to climate resilience and sustainability includes making important tools available to constituents to help them meet their own sustainability goals. Property assessed clean energy, or PACE, financing allows property owners to fund energy efficiency, renewable energy, and wind mitigation projects with little or no up-front costs. With PACE, residential and commercial property owners living within a participating district can finance up to 100% of their project and pay it back over time as a voluntary non-ad valorem assessment on the annual property tax bill.

There may be other types of financing available to property owners and Palm Beach County does not guarantee the PACE program is the best financing option. Just as with any financial decision, property owners review and understand all of their financing options, including getting multiple quotes, before selecting the option most appropriate for their particular financial situation.

This is an assessment on your property; it is not a loan, grant, nor Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners Program
 
Under Florida law, property taxes stay with the property when it is sold and the same holds true for assessments. However, the seller's lender or the buyer's lender (mortgage company) may require the seller to pay off the remaining outstanding balance of the assessment before the property owner sells or refinances the property. Check with your mortgage lender if this may be the case for you. In addition, by law, property owners must provide notice of the assessment to the buyer prior to sale of the property.

Failure to pay the PACE assessment could trigger foreclosure and property loss even if the property owner is current on other mortgage lien(s).
