Synopsis:

 House Bill 173 (HB 173) eliminates the imposition of County Solar Energy Improvement Special Assessments on residential properties.

Analysis:

 House Bill 173 (HB 173) removes county authority to impose County Solar Energy Improvement Special Assessments (SEISA) on residential properties. SEISA provides for financing agreements between property owners and financing institutions for renewable energy improvements. Counties can use SEISA to repay private residential Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) loans. At the request of property owners, counties would direct the county treasurer to include SEISA in the property tax bill. The assessments become a lien on the property and has priority along with other property tax liens. PACE loans take priority over mortgages in the event of foreclosure. Mortgages with a PACE lien may be very difficult to sell before and during foreclosure.

HB 173 applies to SEISA imposed on or after July 1, 2021.
