Brown County has rolled out a new economic development tool called the PACE Program. PACE allows building owners to finance 100 percent of their energy upgrades, including roofs, windows, doors, HVAC, boilers, and other energy savings technologies with no out of pocket dollars. The program aims to give business owners an opportunity to reinvest in their infrastructure and encourage upgrades to blighted properties. After the Brown County Board of Supervisors approved the ordinance in July, building owners and municipalities now have the opportunity to use this tool to help increase investments outside of TIF Districts. Municipalities or business owners that are interested in taking part in the PACE Program, they can contact WECC EFS Senior Manager of Clean Energy Finance Jason Stringer at (608) 729-6854.
