Financing Available for Water and Energy Efficiency Projects


The Board of Supervisors has approved PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) financing for Lake County. Under Assembly Bill 811, California property owners in special assessment districts may enter into voluntary contractual assessments against their properties to finance a range of authorized energy and water efficiency products. Industrial and commercial properties and residential properties greater than 4 units are eligible at this time. Residential properties of 4 units or less with no mortgage liens or with loans not governed by the Federal Housing Finance Agencies (i.e. “Fannie Mae” and “Freddie Mac”) may also be eligible.

Products covered under California PACE™ financing include solar panels, high-efficiency windows and doors, HVAC systems, furnaces and boilers, lighting, insulated roofs and walls, water and pool pumps, water efficient irrigation systems, fuel cells and small wind turbines.
