Largest Ag project to use Property Assessed Clean Energy Completed

PLEASANT HOPE, Mo. — The Show Me PACE Clean Energy District has announced the completion of the largest agricultural PACE project in the country – a farm-to-plate hog processing facility in southwest Missouri which utilized $4 million in Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing for energy and water improvements.

The project is a unique blend of a commitment to healthy food production, sustainable farming and preservation of natural resources. The driving force of facility owner/operator Moon Ridge Foods, LLC is to produce the safest, highest-quality, best-tasting pork products possible while enhancing the lives of their workers, local communities and supplying farmers – all while being good stewards of the environment.

Moon Ridge Foods retrofitted a 75,000-sq.-ft. steel-framed facility in Pleasant Hope, Missouri to accommodate their progressive production and processing methods. PACE financing paid for HVAC upgrades, a high-efficiency boiler, a solar photovoltaic system, an energy-efficient hog harvesting system, an insulated roof upgrade, LED lighting and energy-efficient packaging equipment.

Executive Director’s Column: R-PACE and FHA

Dear PACENation members,

Last month, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development and its Federal Housing Administration issued long-awaited guidance that leads us on a path for broader availability of residential PACE financing throughout the United States. These two tremendously important federal agencies have, after thorough review, concluded that PACE is an entirely valid use of the local government assessment financing mechanism, used for decades by nearly 40,000 assessment districts throughout the US to fund projects that benefit property owners and meet a clear public purpose.  PACENation applauds and strongly supports the guidance, and you can read our full statement here.
