Have you heard of the HERO program? A lot of people haven't! HERO is an acronym that stands for Home Energy Renovation Opportunity. HERO gives financing for excellent energy efficient, water saving and renewable energy products. HERO finances 100% of the cost to purchase and install eligible products. Benefits of this program:

  • Low interest rates
  • Different payment terms ranging from 5-20 years for most of products
  • Repayments can be made through property tax
  • If the property is sold before the HERO Financing is paid in off, the remaining payments will be passed on to a new property owner.

HERO Financing is available to commercial and residential property owners in many cities and counties across California.
