Safety & Security
Insurance and construction experts have proven that they can reduce potential storm damage and losses by up to 40-60% percent by encouraging property owners to make critical structural improvements to older homes. Property owners in counties that implement a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program can make these essential structural improvements immediately and pay for them over time as part of their annual tax assessment.
Utilizing PACE financing, property owners can make wind mitigating improvements that will increase the safety and security of their building, including: wind-rated doors, impact-resistant windows, storm shutters and rooftop hardening equipment.
The Florida PACE Funding Agency has created and is managing a uniform, scalable, cost effective, statewide platform that is easily accessible to all counties. These improvements for wind strengthening are both affordable and easy to obtain through a subscription agreement with the Agency.
