“With PACE financing through the Ohio PACE program, we were able to fund energy-saving improvements such as LED lighting and wall insulation plus add an additional 150 KW of solar power with no down payment or personal guarantees required.”

Ohio PACE for Commercial Property Owners Funding Process

  • Initial Eligibility Form

    The property owner completes a brief form to help Ohio PACE determine if the property and potential energy project is eligible for PACE financing.

  • Energy Project Summary Form

    The property owner works with a Ohio PACE registered contractor to identify eligible energy saving improvements and quantify the energy savings. This form is submitted with the Energy Project Application.

  • Energy Project Application

    The application form allows the property owner to provide essential financial documentation about the property and its operating status. Ohio PACE provides the information to its network of registered capital providers to obtain PACE financing terms for the owner. NOTE: The property owner must obtain written consent from the existing mortgage holder before a PACE special assessment can be added to the property’s tax bill.
