In addition there is the Property-Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program. Through PACE, energy-saving measures pursued by the owners receive project ﬁnancing and are repaid as a separate item on their property tax assessment for a set period. PACE eliminates the burden of upfront costs by providing low-cost, long-term ﬁnancing. PACE is currently available throughout St. Louis and Cook counties (www.cleanenergyresourceteams.org/pace).
