September 18, 2012 (San Diego) -- The Sierra Club Desert Committee has launched a campaign to help bring back the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program, which allows homeowners to finance rooftop solar installations through property tax assessments.   This link enables you to submit comments in support of PACE to the Federal Housing Finance Authority:  

 
A message from Sierra Club’s Desert Committee states: “One of the best ways to reduce our communities' dependence on dirty-energy technologies is to give people the ability to simply use less energy in our homes -- less for light, heat, hot water, cooking, and all the things we do every day. Sounds simple, right? But while several states are trying to make it easier for families to make their homes more efficient, the Federal Housing Finance Authority (FHFA) recently killed the national energy-efficient homes program.”
