Lunch and Learn: What Lenders Need to Know About PACE Financing


Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing is an innovative mechanism for financing energy efficiency, water efficiency and renewable energy improvements. PACE financing can be an important part of the capital stack for new development or rehabilitation of existing buildings. Dane County recently joined the statewide PACE program, and municipalities across the state are looking into PACE as a mechanism to assist property owners and developers in financing more complex projects.

At this Lunch and Learn, a panel of property owners and lenders experienced with PACE financing will answer lenders'' questions about PACE, including how a PACE loan fits into the capital stack, the standard terms for a loan, mechanics of loan repayment, and the priority of a PACE loan in relation to other liens and mortgages.

Nick Bickler, Vice President, Relationship Manager, Associated Bank
