Summary 

Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG) is offering homeowners in WRCOG participating jurisdictions an opportunity to finance energy and water efficiency projects in their homes. The Home Energy Renovation Opportunity (HERO) Program is a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing program. PACE programs allow homeowners to finance energy improvements, and to repay the financing through special assessments on their property taxes. In most cases the property tax assessment will stay with the property if it is sold, though the buyer's lender may impose restrictions on the transfer.

A wide variety of energy and water efficiency products permanently affixed to the property can qualify for this program. Light bulbs, appliances, and other products not permanently affixed to the property are ineligible for this program. Only contractors registered with the program or a property owner who has signed a Self-Install Agreement may install the financed equipment.
