The commercial property-assessed clean energy (PACE) model offers governments an innovative way to support clean energy projects in the private sector. Over the last several years, commercial PACE programs have been launched across the United States, and many more local and state governments are considering this approach. In March, DOE will publish a set of resources to support the design and implementation of PACE programs, including an updated "Guide to Commercial PACE Financing" with a sample application package and new templates for marketing programs. This webinar will provide an update on commercial PACE trends and introduce the new DOE resources, as well as feature experiences from the field.
