PACE Wisconsin provides a uniform, statewide approach to offering PACE financing to commercial property owners located in member Wisconsin communities. Administered by WECC EFS, a Wisconsin-based 501(c)3 nonprofit, PACE Wisconsin enables commercial property owners to finance the installation of energy and water improvements in their buildings. To take advantage of PACE Wisconsin, property owners develop qualifying projects with contractors of their choice. PACE financing is sourced from an open lending market and secured through a voluntary PACE Special Charge, repaid directly to the lender. With the support of the Wisconsin Counties Association and the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, Wisconsin local governments utilized their joint exercise of powers authority to form PACE Wisconsin. PACE Wisconsin invites local governments, businesses, and property owners to participate in this opportunity to make Wisconsin’s communities more economically and environmentally sustainable.
