Green Finance

In addition to our work in the public finance realm, NHA Advisors has been a pioneer in green finance.

PACE

NHA Advisors was the original financial architect to the green financing program now called Property Assessed Clean Energy (“PACE”). NHA Advisors developed the first property-tax based financing structure for the City of Berkeley, California in 2007.

Our Experience

PACE is a voluntary program that allows eligible property owners to finance energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements through low-interest loans from cities and counties that are repaid through an assessment on the property owner’s property tax bill.

PACE Education

On the Cutting Edge

NHA Advisors is currently working on a turn-key solution for solar projects in public parking areas for both school districts and other public agencies. This solution will not only include the physical prototype of the system but also the financing structure to make it work in many jurisdictions.
