“We are pleased to announce that property owners in Nevada County can now apply to finance energy efficiency improvements and repay it through an assessment on their property tax bill,” said Jenine Windeshausen, mPOWER Administrator. “Residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural property owners can use mPOWER financing for energy efficiency improvements that save money, conserve energy and create local jobs.”

Energy efficiency improvements may include a new furnace and air conditioner, energy efficient windows, or even a solar photovoltaic system. Water conservation improvements can also be financed with mPOWER and include measures like on-demand hot water heaters, smart irrigation controllers and high-efficiency toilets.  mPOWER can finance up to 100% of the project costs with a fixed-interest rate and terms up to 20 years for many improvements.

The mPOWER program (Money for Property Owner Water & Energy Retrofits) has funded more than $57 million in energy efficiency and water conservation projects for both residential and non-residential property owners in Placer County. Participation in PACE is completely voluntary, and there are no pre-payment penalties and no out-of-pocket fees.
