PACE Energy Program Revamps for 2018 [AUDIO]

In 2015, Tompkins county adopted the Sustainable Energy Loan Program which has provided Property Assessed Clean Energy, or PACE financing for local energy-related improvement projects. The financing program helps commercial and non-profit building owners reduce operating costs and increase the value of their properties through clean energy improvements. The Legislature has scheduled a public hearing for July 17th on a new Local Law to modify the entire County’s 2015 PACE program, modifications that the city of Ithaca itself has already approved. This story originally aired on Wednesday, July 11th on WRFI Community Radio News.
