About The Agency
The Florida PACE Funding Agency was created in 2011 through an interlocal agreement between Flagler County and the City of Kissimmee for the sole purpose of leveraging the advantages of an independent statewide approach to PACE financing. The County and the City of Kissimmee effectively acted as “incorporators” of a separate and focused legal entity. Hence, the Agency was created “by local governments, for local governments.”
Florida PACE Funding Agency Mission
The Florida PACE Funding Agency’s mission is to facilitate the implementation, planning, development, funding, financing, marketing and management of a uniform statewide platform so that counties and cities can easily and economically take advantage of a scalable program for their residential and commercial property-owning constituents. The Florida PACE Funding Agency is authorized to issue bonds as needed to provide funds with which to finance Qualifying Improvements and to offer its funding program, E|VEST Florida, throughout the Florida to willing local government participants or program subscribers.
The E|VEST Florida Program
E|VEST Florida is the program platform developed by the Florida PACE Funding Agency to administer the program. Using E|VEST Florida’s online capabilities, property owners can apply and receive funding for qualified improvements, contractors can apply to become “authorized” contractors, and potential energy savings and applicable rebates can be determined. E|VEST Florida represents the easiest path to secure financing for energy-efficiency, renewable generation or wind-hardening improvements.
