Financing Solar Energy with the HERO Program
The WRCOG HERO Program is an opportunity offered through a partnership between Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG) and Renovate America, Inc. The Program’s purpose is to provide financing based on equity in the home and provides HERO Financing for permanently affixed energy efficiency, water efficiency, and renewable energy products (Eligible Products).
HERO Financing is repaid through an assessment on your property tax bill over 5-20 years, based on the useful life of the products. Upon sale of the property, the balance generally stays with the property.
