Energize NY PACE
Funding Your Clean Energy Project
Energize NY PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) provides low cost, long-term alternative to traditional loans to fund clean energy projects in commercially owned buildings. PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) financing is not a bank loan and differs from traditional financing options because:
- eligibility for financing is not based on traditional credit scores
- financing is available for up to 100% of the project cost, or can be combined with other financing
- customizable loan terms up to 20 years
- the financing is repaid through an annual charge on the property’s tax bill, like other municipal charges for sewer or water
- the financing automatically transfers to a new owner if the property is sold
- Energize NY will finance only those projects generate cash flow to the owner, which means that the estimated annual savings exceed the annual financing cost
Applying for Energize NY PACE is easy, with an online application, fast approvals and customer service to help you through the process.
