Williamson County Adopts PACE Program

4.6.16

Today, Williamson County Texas became the 4th Texas County to adopt a PACE program. The commissioners unanimously adopted the resolution put forward by Commissioner Cynthia Long, continuing the unanimous trend to adopt the PACE in a Box model. State Rep. Tony Dale, who supported PACE legislation, also weighed in with a strong letter of support. The Texas PACE Authority will administer the program at no cost to the County. 

Williamson County is the 6th fastest growing county in the nation, and one of the healthiest counties in the Texas. Its county seat, the City of Georgetown, will be one of the largest municipally-owned utilities in the U.S. to supply its customers with 100 percent solar and wind energy, providing competitive electric rates and a hedge against price volatility. PACE, which was widely supported by Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development organizations, provides a new economic and environmental tool for the commercial, industrial, multi-family and nonprofit organizations in the fast-growing county.
