PACE allows business owners to realize immediate positive cash flow while using less energy and providing new, more efficient energy technology and often safer, quieter, and brighter work environments.
“PACE is just win-win all the way around. We need to get the word out, so companies can take advantage of this,” says Scott Ringlein, CEO and founder of EAG of Michigan, a PACE Project Developer, and host of the Sept. 9 event.
Already 15 Michigan counties and five cities have approved a public/private partnership with Lean & Green Michigan to be PACE finance districts, with more coming onboard all the time.
Current Lean & Green Pace districts include the counties of Bay, Calhoun, Eaton, Genesee, Grand Traverse, Houghton, Huron, Ingham, Kalamazoo, Macomb, Marquette, Montcalm, Saginaw, Washtenaw and Wayne and the cities of Ferndale, Pleasant Ridge, Rochester, Royal Oak and Southfield.

Commercial, industrial, multifamily, non-profit and faith-based property owners within PACE districts can take advantage of Lean & Green Michigan PACE, which offers long-term, fixed-rate financing solutions for energy efficiency, water efficiency and renewable energy upgrades.
