PACE Financing

Property Assessed Clean Energy, or PACE, is a financing tool enabling development of clean energy projects and energy efficient buildings and operations. The intent of this program is to encourage the reduction of energy, water, and wastewater in our community as well as encourage the use of renewable energy systems.

The City of Norfolk views PACE as a tool to encourage developers and property owners to go beyond the requirements of energy and building codes to achieve meaningful reductions in energy and water use, and to employ renewable energy systems.
