Property Assessed Clean Energy
The South Dakota PACE campaign (SD-PACE) is being supported by Dakota Rural Action's Clean Energy Development committee. Our mission is to promote Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing by providing leadership and support for a growing universe of PACE market participants.
We envision a future in which PACE financing is used to fund energy efficiency, renewable energy, and resiliency upgrades to homes and commercial buildings in every municipality across the United States. By making clean energy financing more affordable and more convenient, PACE will continue to improve America’s energy independence and energy security, avoid the costs of building power plants and transmission systems, save money, create jobs and protect the environment.
SD-PACE needs support from individuals and businesses who will contact their legislators and local officials and voice their support for the economic and environmental benefits PACE can bring to our state and local communities.
Our first objective is to introduce PACE-enabling legislation in the South Dakota 2018 legislative session. With state legislation in place, counties and municipalities will be able to enable PACE locally.
If you are interested in joining in the effort, learn about how PACE works and contact your legislators. Contact us to volunteer directly with the efforts underway or donate.
