PACE in Kentucky:

GC-PACE finances 1st PACE project in the State of Kentucky

The Energy Alliance recently announced the completion of the first project in Kentucky under its GC-PACE program. Working in cooperation with the City of Covington and the owner of the Ivy Knoll Senior Living Community, the project is the first in the state to use PACE financing. The owners of Ivy Knoll recognized that PACE offered an ideal way to finance many of the energy related improvements that the building needed. For Covington, PACE presented a great way to help support local economic development.
