The 50-unit complex, set to rise soon on Aldersgate Road, will be the first project in the county to use a financing option that pays 100 percent of the upfront costs of energy-saving upgrades — an option that lets the capital be repaid over many years as an addition to property tax bills. Energy savings over the payoff period are calculated to cover the cost.
The $6.6 million complex, known for now as the Preserve at Aldersgate, is also the first new construction multifamily project in the nation to adopt PACE financing. The method uses a special improvement district to pay for features that significantly save water and electricity or make other use of sustainable energy.
