E2 Advocacy Projects: SB 77 - PACE Financing and Jobs

Objective

E2 was originator and principal sponsor of SB 77, Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE). PACE financing was pioneered in California and several counties and cities have implemented programs. The program authorized by this bill will enable new PACE programs in local governments and qualified entities that choose to participate to get more favorable financing rates and make these loans more attractive to participating residential and commercial building owners. PACE loans would be implemented through private bonds repaid by assessments selected by the private property owners, which is further secured by a lien on the property.

E2 has also run a similar federal campaign. Details can be found here.
