In other PACE news, Milwaukee-based PACE Equity, a provider of PACE commercial real estate financing, project development, and energy engineering services, announced the ailability of an additional $200 million in new financing as well as the expansion of its team of Market Leaders in cities nationwide.

PACE – Property Assessed Clean Energy – is a novel approach to financing energy efficiency projects for commercial real estate.
Under PACE, the energy efficiency loans are repaid via a long-term property tax assessment that covers 100 percent of their costs, increasing security for lenders and offering longer repayment terms, making energy efficiency projects with a longer-term return on investment feasible.
“Our capital gives customers predictability of pricing, process, and timing – which are critical in the success of PACE Equity’s growth in new markets” said Kevin Moyer, PACE Equity Partner and Chief Investment Officer. “This also gives us the ability to be very customer centric as we can directly manage financing terms to meet individual developer/owner needs.”
