Homeowners can use innovative HERO financing to reduce energy bills and stay safe through upgrading roofing, windows and doors, HVAC, solar, and more
ORLANDO, July 26, 2017 – Homeowners in communities across the state of Florida now have access to an innovative form of financing called HERO, which allows them to make residential energy, efficiency, and wind-resistance improvements and pay for the upgrades over time through their property tax bill. Eligible improvements include solar panels; energy-efficient HVAC systems, roofing, and windows; and roof-to-wall connections, storm shutters and other products that can protect against wind damage and meet Florida Building Code requirements.
HERO, which stands for Home Energy Renovation Opportunity, is the nation’s largest form of Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing and its launch is expected to bring multiple benefits to Florida communities and to individual homeowners.
