Congregation Beth Israel, a Jewish synagogue in Austin Texas used PACE to upgrade its building. PACE, an acronym for Property Assessed Clean Energy is used by both commercial businesses and not-for-profits to finance energy improvements that make financial sense. In this case, a $435,500 comprehensive retrofit produced $35,000 in energy savings - a direct reduction in operating costs. Energy improvement measures included: New Chiller and Boiler Systems and Window Tinting. The improvement costs were offset by locally available gas and energy rebates.
