Kern County is getting out of the home improvement lending business as Supervisors agreed to repeal the Property Assessed Clean Energy, or PACE, program.
People on both sides of the issue were at Tuesday’s meeting, but some homeowners told the Board that tax liens on their houses and shady lenders have caused big problems.
Supervisors hope the state will fix tax lien issues with PACE so it can be reconsidered. PACE helps homeowners swap out polluting energy systems with green technology through a property tax increase.
