Loudoun PACE Petition
- Hits: 47
We must empower people to choose energy conservation and all forms of renewable energy. The longer term aspects of the best energy efficient and renewable energy technologies are lost by the short term approach to these invisible home and business improvements. A new structure can make it possible for all properties to be paid for their investments through energy efficiency. That structure is called PACE. This stands for Property Assessed Clean Energy. Instead of sending dollars out of the community, we can use those dollars to invest in the community and create jobs, reduce our energy dependence, and improve our air quality. By repairing the financial disconnect between a property and its energy consumption we can achieve carbon footprint reductions of 60-70 % for most properties and up to 90% of those eligible for solar PV installations. The legislation has passed in Virginia. It's up to us to move forward with the next phase.
