Monthly Luncheon "O&M Upgrade without Capital Expenditure"

Approved by State legislation and established by Established by Bastrop, Hays, Travis and Williamson Counties, TX-PACE enables owners to lower their operating costs and use the savings to pay for eligible water conservation, energy efficiency, resiliency, and distributed generation projects.
