    Dividend’s PACE Financing: Funding Clean Energy Solutions for Your Community

    An innovative way to finance energy, water efficiency, renewable energy improvements, and seismic retrofits, to your community’s building stock

    Over 200 cities and counties throughout California have adopted Dividend’s PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) program. This desirable and proven financing is made available through the California Enterprise Development Authority (CEDA), a statewide Joint Powers Authority, operating under Assembly Bill 811. Dividend’s PACE program enables property owners to pay for clean energy projects through a line item charge on their property tax bill.

    Dividend’s PACE Benefits Your Community

    • Stimulates your local economy
      Investing in energy retrofits can create more gross economic output and greater federal, state and local tax revenues.
    • Creates local jobs
      Investing in energy retrofits creates more jobs within your community.
    • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions
      Dividend’s PACE program enables greenhouse gas-reducing building improvements and supports the efforts identified in your Climate Action Plan.
