The county, not near the limit on its PACE program investment, opened up more opportunities for property owners to finance clean energy plans. Supervisor Diane Jacobs, with the aid of Supervisor Dave Roberts, proposed the move to guarantee San DIegans do not fall short on opportunities to live using clean energy, and lower the resource usage.
Last week, the county board, failing to gain Supervisor Horn's support, made the program expansion a foregone decision.
One of the local programs in the state's plan to convert California to clean energy set up by the legislature's AB 11, the property assessed clean energy program still is being built up to scale. Raising the count on locals participation in the program keeps the county government's hands full.
Two grant funding programs add to the size of the PACE program. Widening the use of renewable energy sources counts for a success in both. The two programs work together to lower greenhouse gases, and protect the environment.
San Diegans who might not be able to scrape through on plans to add renewable energy distribution generation sources to the property can ask the county for a PACE grant. Home installation costs, when paid for with grant money, can turn into an affordable investment. Work increasing energy and water efficiency on the property also qualifies for PACE grant funding.
One program has another incentive to motivate San DIegans to cooperate in the state's plans to increase energy use. Grants that pay the cost of building stations for electric vehicle charging are also available.
