­­­What is PACE financing?

PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) is a home improvement financing option that makes it easier to go solar and pay for energy-efficient upgrades.

How the PACE Program works.

States pass laws that make it possible for cities and counties to adopt the PACE Program at the local level.

Homeowners in PACE-enabled communities are then able to apply for PACE financing programs, like HERO, to make energy-efficiency upgrades or go solar.

Once their home improvement project is complete, the homeowner repays the PACE assessment through an additional line item on their property tax bill.

HERO financing is a leading PACE provider for a reason.
