Kentucky PACE Funding Process

  • List

    Initial Eligibility Form

    The property owner completes a brief form at KYPACE.org to help PACE determine if the property and potential energy project is eligible for PACE financing.

  • List

    Energy Project Summary Form

    The property owner works with a PACE registered contractor to identify eligible energy saving improvements and quantify the energy savings. This form is submitted with the Energy Project Application.

  • List

    Energy Project Application

    The application allows the property owner to provide essential financial documentation about the property and its operating status. PACE provides the information to its network of registered capital providers to obtain PACE financing terms for the owner. NOTE: The property owner must obtain written consent from the existing mortgage holder before a PACE special assessment can be added to the property’s tax bill.

ABOUT ENERGIZE KENTUCKY

ENERGIZE KENTUCKY is a program available to commercial, industrial, and multi-family building owners across the Commonwealth. PACE provides access to low-cost, extended term capital to finance energy efficiency and water efficiency improvements.

KY-PACE is the implementation of a state law commonly called EPAD, that was adopted in 2015 (KRS 65.205), and allows a property owner to finance energy efficiency, renewable energy and water-saving improvements through a voluntary assessment on the property.
