HERO Financing Makes Sense

The Home Energy Renovation Opportunity (HERO) Program, which helps homeowners afford energy-efficient and water-saving home upgrades, launched in the second-largest U.S. city in May 2015 as part of the Los Angeles County Energy Program (LACEP). Los Angeles is one of more than 350 California communities that have adopted HERO to help its residents save money and use less energy.

With the drought continuing to affect homes and businesses in California, and with the governor ordering a 25% cut in urban water use statewide, efficient and affordable means for water conservation are necessary now more than ever.

“The City of Los Angeles is proud to drive the creation of local green jobs, and help local residents save water and money on their utility bills,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said. Learn more about Los Angeles County-approved PACE program administrators at pace.lacounty.gov.

In California alone, HERO has helped to create more than 8,200 jobs, funded more than 48,000 residential projects, and provided more than $975 million in financing to homeowners.

Homeowners in Los Angeles can easily apply for HERO online or over the phone to determine if they are eligible for energy-efficient and water-saving home repairs and renovations. There is no application fee, and approval only takes a few minutes.

HERO was recently awarded the Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership Award in California, the Urban Land Institute Best of the Best, and the Southern California Association of Governments President’s Award for Excellence.
