The C-PACE Statute, Pennsylvania Act 30 of 2018, states that a municipality with an economic or community development department or a county may adopt a C-PACE resolution or ordinance. While certain municipalities can adopt the program, SEF, PEA and KEEA have sought to have the 67 counties adopt the program thus encompassing all properties in the county, regardless of municipality. This approach may simplify the program for property owners and contractors and lead to greater use of C-PACE. To support this approach SEF, EPA and KEEA have developed “C-PACE in a Box” to streamline the adoption.
A county may recover costs and expenses, including attorney fees, in a suit to collect a delinquent installment of an assessment in the same manner as in a suit to collect a delinquent property tax.
