Frequently Asked Questions
An ESID is a public body created under Ohio law and controlled by the board of directors of a non-profit corporation set up for that purpose. An ESID is a specific type of special improvement district.
The Columbus Regional Energy Special Improvement District, Inc. was created in December 2015 for the purpose of enhancing the value of properties within the District and improving the environment by developing and assisting in developing special energy improvement projects. The District is authorized to take any legal actions that may be taken by a special improvement district organized for the purpose of developing and implementing plans for special energy improvement projects.
Participating political subdivisions are authorized to levy a special assessment on each property within their respective territorial boundary within the District to pay for special energy improvement projects. Property owners may request to include their properties within the energy special improvement districts (ESIDs) by petitioning the municipality or township. ESIDs are voluntary organizations of property owners who undertake special energy improvement projects for their properties and finance such projects by way of voluntary special assessments. The members of the District are the owners of real property within the territory of the District.
The District enables property assessed clean energy (PACE) financing, which is secured by special assessments on real property for special energy improvement projects.
The District is controlled and managed under the direction of a Board of Directors who are appointed by and serve at the pleasure of each participating municipality or township’s municipal executive. The remaining Directors shall be Members or executive representatives of Members elected, designated, or appointed by the Members as described in the Code of Regulations.
By law, PACE financing may only be provided within an Energy Special Improvement District.
An ESID enables the offering of PACE financing and the related special assessment repayment mechanism.
