Roberts Walks the Water Talk with Artificial Turf at Home
To set an example amid the statewide drought — and save his family money — county Supervisor Dave Roberts is replacing his lawn with artificial turf. The project is eligible for rebates and Roberts can finance it through an assessment on this property tax bill under the Property Assessed Clean Energy, or PACE, program. Interest on the financing is tax-deducible, like mortgage interest. PACE is administered in California through the Home Energy Renovation Opportunity or HERO, organization.
