Figtree PACE: Energy Solutions for Your Community

A growing number of cities and counties throughout California including, recently, the City of San Diego, have adopted the Figtree PACE program – a new way to finance energy and water efficiency and renewable energy building improvements. This innovative and proven financing model is made available through the California Enterprise Development Authority (CEDA), a statewide Joint Powers Authority. Operating under Assembly Bill 811, Figtree PACE enables property owners to make payments for Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing through a line item charge on their property tax bill.

Figtree PACE Benefits Your Community

  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Figtree PACE enables GHG-reducing building improvements and supports the efforts identified in your Climate Action Plan.
