Among the most popular upgrades that are eligible under this program, are whole-home heating and cooling (HVAC), solar power installations, energy-saving windows, roofing and insulation, among other types of energy and water efficient improvements. Property owners are able to borrow up to 15% of their property’s value and repay the loan over a fixed time period through an assessment on their property tax bill.
The HERO Program is different from traditional consumer financing because approvals are based primarily on the amount of equity a homeowner has in their home. All financing and project approvals are processed through HERO Program staff, and not through the City of San Fernando. Altogether, 228 communities participate in the HERO Program and more than $100 Million in energy efficiency upgrades have been approved.
For more information about the program, eligibility requirements, and financing details, please visit the HERO Program website or contact their representatives.
