Public Hearing Scheduled on Updated Sustainable Energy Loan Program Law

Tuesday, July 3, 2018

The Legislature scheduled a July 17 public hearing on a new Local Law to modify the County’s 2015 Local Law establishing the County’s Sustainable Energy Loan Program.  The hearing is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at County Legislature Chambers at the Governor Daniel D. Tompkins Building, 121 E. Court Street, Ithaca.

The Sustainable Energy Loan Program, adopted by the County Legislature in 2015, provides Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing for local energy-related improvement projects by implementing the Energize NY Benefit Financing Program authorized by New York State.  The financing program helps commercial and non-profit building owners reduce operating costs and increase the value of their properties through clean energy improvements.  The recommended modifications would incorporate updated provisions of the New York State PACE law, and would keep the County’s PACE provisions in line with the City of Ithaca’s PACE law, adopted in March.
