Hear Charlene Heydinger,the executive director of Keeping PACE in Texas, describe newly enacted legislation in Texas (SB 385) which authorizes municipalities and counties in Texas to work with private sector lenders to enable owners of commercial and industrial properties to obtain low-cost, long-term loans for water conservation, energy-efficiency improvements, and renewable retrofits. Property owners then repay the loans using contractual assessments voluntarily imposed on the property by the owner.
The loan program is known as PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy), and it has the potential to significantly increase the market for energy and water saving projects in Texas. A robust effort, called PACE in a Box, is underway to assist counties and municipalities with the creation, design, and implementation of locally-administered PACE programs.
