After complaints and scrutiny over the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program and its sometimes harmful impacts on low-income residents, Miami-Dade has even more guardrails.
Commissioners approved a measure by Kevin Marino Cabrera requiring PACE entities to improve their reporting, communications and finance-vetting.
It follows legislation Cabrera passed in September hiking PACE disclosure obligations.
“This resolution helps keep PACE honest,” he said. “(It’s) a crucial step in our ongoing efforts to protect our community.”
Cabrera’s office this week announced a new $600,000 partnership with the Latin Builders Association and PACE entity Ygrene to help seniors improve their homes’ energy efficiency.
