MassDevelopment Expands PACE Program to New Buildings 

MassDevelopment has expanded the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Massachusetts program to include both new construction and existing buildings for financing energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.  

Initially launched in 2020, PACE Massachusetts offered financing for existing buildings. The recent expansion, following a legislative change, now allows new construction buildings to be eligible as well.  

This long-term financing option is available for commercial and industrial properties and multifamily buildings with five or more units. Property owners can undertake energy upgrades, including solar panels, energy management systems, lighting, and HVAC systems, with longer financing terms of up to 20 years.
