Leading the Way

We created the HERO Program, which has become the fastest growing energy efficiency financing solution in the country. With over $1.5 billion in funded projects in the program’s first 4 years, HERO is setting records nationwide.

A Powerful Platform

We work in partnership with local government to administer and manage the HERO Program. Renovate America brings private capital to meet public policy objectives, with payments by property owners collected over time as an assessment on their property taxes. All funding, support services and technology are provided at no cost to community partners.


PACE Works

The partnership between HERO and local governments is made possible by PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) legislation, which gives property owners a new way to borrow money for energy-efficient home upgrades. Approvals are based on the amount of equity in the home, and if the property is sold, any remaining balance may be legally passed on to the new owner. HERO offers low, fixed financing terms to incentivize property owners to make the energy-efficient choice when making home upgrades.
