California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority

Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Loss Reserve Program

Program Activity


After the PACE Loss Reserve Program’s launch, in June 2014 the California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority (CAEATFA) initially enrolled eight PACE programs with a total of 17,401 residential PACE financings valued at over $350 million. To date, 136,208 residential PACE financings valued at about $3.17 billion are covered by the PACE Loss Reserve.

Enrolled PACE programs must report to CAEATFA on the size and status of their portfolios in March for activity from July–December of the previous year, and in October for activity from January–December of the same year. Each eligible financing included in the semi-annual reports is enrolled in and covered by the loss reserve. PACE administrators that applied to the PACE Loss Reserve Program on or before June 9, 2014, were allowed to have their entire existing portfolios included under the reserve to maximize the Program’s effectiveness. To allow new PACE programs to enroll without delaying their operations, the loss reserve also covers financings originated up to 30 days before their enrollment date.

Estimated Environmental Savings

Enrolled PACE programs must provide estimated environmental savings resulting from PACE financings enrolled in the PACE Loss Reserve Program with each October semi-annual report, to the extent that information is available.

The table below details the estimated environmental savings from financings originated through June 30, 2020, as reported by enrolled PACE programs.
