Clean energy bills would provide new type of loans for Michigan homeowners
LANSING -- Bills to expand clean energy loans in Michigan could see changes to beef up consumer protections. Bipartisan legislation recently before a state House committee would extend Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) loans to residential property owners. It’s the lien on a resident’s property that has the opposition concerned.
