PACE is a tool for property owners to finance private property improvements related to renewable energy, energy efficiency, and hurricane hardening through assessments levied on their property tax bill by special districts established for that purpose.


The Sarasota County Commission adopted an ordinance setting the framework for a PACE program, and signed agreements with four PACE providers. In January 2019, the first PACE provider completed requirements and launched its PACE program in Sarasota County.

For information on the PACE program, view our 2017 FAQ blog post. Additional information will be provided soon.
