Leading the Way

We created the HERO Financing Program, which has now become the fastest growing energy efficiency financing solution in the country. With over $325 Million in funded projects in the Program’s first 3 years it is setting records nationwide.

Best of Both Worlds

We work in partnership with municipalities to administer and manage the HERO Program. Lending capital is provided by private sources, and payments are collected by the municipalities along with a resident’s property taxes.

PACE Works

The partnership is made possible by PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) legislation, which provides property owners a new way of borrowing money for energy improvements. Approvals are based on the amount of equity in the home and if the property is sold any remaining balance can be legally passed on to the new owner. This diminishes the risk of long-term home improvement investments, and attractive financing terms incentivize property owners to make the energy efficient choice when upgrading appliances permanently affixed to the property.

95% of All Residential PACE Projects are HERO Projects
