Other Local Incentives
The state passed PACE (Property-assessed clean energy) enabling legislation in 2009 which will allow towns to use the PACE mechanism to finance clean energy projects through property taxes. There is one active program — NH C-PACE, which launched in 2016 and is currently operational in Hanover, NH. This program makes it possible for owners of privately-owned commercial properties (including non-profits) to obtain affordable, long-term financing for energy-efficiency and renewable energy projects.
