PACE Presentation to Space Coast Energy Symposium

Last week I presented at the Space Coast Energy Symposium over in Cocoa, FL.  Their group put on an excellent event and I enjoyed my panel on PACE and energy finance.  I wanted to give a quick recap on what I discussed.

EcoAsset Solutions formed a new company in Florida called Ygrene Energy Fund Florida which is headquartered in Tampa.  Our company provides a turnkey third party administration service for local governments in Florida that want to design, implement, finance and administer a PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) program in their commmunity.

PACE is an important financing tool for critical property improvements with significant financial benefit .  Our solution makes PACE affordable and convenient and it's ready to go and fully funded on Day 1.  That's the Ygrene difference.

If your community is interested in a Ygrene PACE program, one general action step you can take is to convene your local property owners (commercial and/or residential), contractors, and government staff and officials and engage them in a dialgoue about PACE that Ygrene facilitates in what we call a PACE workshop.

Ultimately, the benefit is simple.  First, FAMILIES that benefit from the JOBS that are created are the clear winners with PACE.  In addition to that, there are enormous environmental benefits, energy savings benefits and the local government will generate new revenues from taxes on product and service sales as well as other revenue.

Finally, if you'd like to learn more about the Miami Green Corridor PACE program that we are launching, please post a comment that I can respond to.  You can also visit

If you'd like to know what the best practices are for launching PACE in Florida and you need to have a plan of action on what to do next, please post a comment or contact me directly at

All the best,
