The Environmental Improvement and Energy Resources Authority (EIERA) is seeking input on whether State Regulations are necessary to clarify the definition of Energy Efficiency Improvement or Renewable Energy Improvement as they relate to Property Assessment Clean Energy (PACE) Programs.
The PACE Act, including these definitions, may be found at Chapter 67.2800-.2835 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri. The EIERA’s rulemaking authority is limited to the administration of the Local PACE fund (which does not exist and is not currently under consideration) and to clarify the definitions of Energy Efficiency Improvement or Renewable Energy Improvement. The EIERA does not have rulemaking authority for any other aspect of PACE implementation.
Surveys asking about the need to clarify these definitions were accepted through November 30, 2017. The surveys received may be viewed here.
Additionally, meetings were held in Kansas City, Jefferson City, Springfield and St. Louis to discuss the need for clarification with stakeholders. Meeting summaries can be found below:
Additional comment on the Survey Responses received, comments provided at stakeholder meetings or generally on the need to clarify the definitions of energy efficiency improvement or renewable energy improvement will be taken through December 31, 2017. You may email, mail or fax your comments to:
