  11. 11. PACE / AB-811 Property Assessed Clean Energy or “ PACE” programs, also commonly referred to as AB 811 - style programs, allow local government entities to offer sustainable energy project loans to eligible property owners. Through the creation of financing districts, property owners can finance renewable onsite generation installations and energy efficiency improvements through a voluntary assessment on their property tax bills. The assessment district approach adds a powerful new option to the clean energy finance landscape. CCSE’s Role: Facilitator , Educator , Administrator - From Energycenter.org
