Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing is designed to drive investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy in Greater Cincinnati. By making energy investments easier, PACE has the power to spur economic and community development in our region. With these goals at the forefront, the Energy Alliance has been making an ongoing effort to help educate our community on these issues.
On November 11, we convened a diverse group of finance leaders, municipal leaders, and commercial contractors for a breakfast discussion about how to expand PACE in Greater Cincinnati. The focus of the event was to provide attendees with an understanding of how PACE is being utilized in other parts of the country and to answer their questions about how to grow PACE locally. We were fortunate to have the discussion led by David Gabrielson, George Caragthiaur, and Kristina Klimovich from PACENow, a national organization that promotes and assists the development of PACE programs. It was a lively conversation and we look forward to providing additional opportunities to learn about PACE in the future.
