PALM COAST, Fla., Aug. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Florida PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) Funding Agency (Agency) continues to build on its story of success across the state adding Flagler County as the latest jurisdiction to complete a PACE project utilizing its innovative financing program, E|VEST Florida. Homeowner Jill Trecki (Palm Coast) replaced her old central air conditioning system with a more efficient one and increased the safety of her home with a code-compliant roof replacement. The work was completed by Flagler County Heating & Air (Palm Coast) and EZ Roofing Systems (Winter Haven).
"The PACE program is truly a blessing in our community," said Trecki. "I would not have been able to have the roof and air conditioning replaced without them. I would recommend this program to anyone who needs help."
Flagler County Heating and Air Conditioning (FCHAC) is the leading provider of commercial, residential and industrial air conditioning and commercial refrigeration in the Palm Coast, Flagler County.
"The PACE program was easy to use," said FCHAC Operations Manager Dan Gouldner. "It was simply a matter of providing some information on the equipment and checking some boxes. Agency staff was helpful and responsive throughout the process. We look forward to working with the Agency in the future."
Property owners like Trecki who take advantage of the Agency's voluntary E|VEST program have the option to finance needed repairs or improvements to their homes and businesses, such as roofing systems, windows and doors, storm shutters, air conditioning, lighting, water heaters, insulation and even solar energy projects. The financing is then repaid through an assessment placed on the annual property tax bill.
Subscription to the Agency's E|VEST program is without cost or liability, and easily initiated through a city or county commission resolution authorizing an interlocal agreement with the Agency.
