Property Assessed Clean Energy Program

Pleasant Hill is now part of the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program. PACE is a statewide program which allows property owners to fund energy efficiency, water efficiency and renewable energy projects with little or no up-front costs. With PACE, residential and commercial property owners living within Pleasant Hill can finance up to 100% of their project and pay it back over time as a voluntary property tax assessment through their existing property tax bill.

You can use the PACE program to finance energy and water efficient projects that can increase your property value, lower your monthly utility bills, and contribute to making Pleasant Hill more energy independent. Some of these upgrades include items such as:
  • Windows, Skylights, & Doors
  • Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning
  • Solar Panels
  • Roofing & Insulation
  • Water Heating
  • Artificial Turf
  • Drought Tolerant Landscaping
  • Drip Irrigation
  • Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

HERO PACE financing enables homeowners to make energy- and water-efficiency improvements and pay for them through their property tax bill. Property owners repay the assessment over 5 to 20 years and the interest is tax-deductible. Homeowners see immediate savings on utility bills. Given the State of California’s newly-adopted regulations aimed at reducing urban water consumption by 25%, PACE financing is a particularly appealing option for homeowners and municipalities.
