IRVINE, CA—Twenty six cities and five counties across California launched the HERO Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Program this week. HERO PACE financing enables homeowners to make energy- and water-efficiency improvements and pay for them over time through their property tax bill. Interest may be tax-deductible, and homeowners may see immediate savings on utility bills.

The HERO Program launched this week in the cities of Arcata, Camarillo, Chowchilla, Chula Vista, Fairfax, Firebaugh, Fowler, Hayward, Huron, Larkspur, Madera, Millbrae, Mission Viejo, Mountain View, Novato, Oakland, Patterson, Rohnert Park, Salinas, San Anselmo, San Rafael, Santa Cruz, Seaside, Tiburon, Trinidad and Union City, as well as the unincorporated areas of Del Norte, El Dorado, Humboldt, Marin and Tehama Counties. Residents of these municipalities may now submit applications for HERO financing.
