PACE Rulemaking

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.

If you, or your organization, believe that rules to clarify the definition of Energy Efficiency Improvement or Renewable Energy Improvement are necessary, we would like to hear specifically what is needed and why. Likewise, if you do not think rules are needed we would like to hear from you as well.  We are asking that interested parties complete this survey to provide information that will be helpful in the EIERA’s consideration of this matter. Responses will be accepted until November 30, 2017. You may e-mail, mail or fax your response to: Environmental Improvement and Energy Resources Authority, PO Box 744, Jefferson City, MO 65102, EIERA@eiera.mo.gov, Fax 573-635-3486.

Public meetings will be held in Kansas City, St. Louis, Jefferson City and Springfield to discuss the responses, gather information and solicit additional suggestions.
