HERO Program

Sunline Energy Community Power Program partnered with RENOVATE AMERICA


The HERO Programs help local economies and the environment by providing homeowners with much-needed financing for energy and water efficient home improvements and renewable energy systems. Communities with HERO Programs have increased construction activity, created jobs, lowered utility bills, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Through the HERO Program, homeowners can apply for low cost HERO Financing for home improvements such as installing solar, replacing an old air conditioning system, air sealing and weatherization, and installing insulation.

Homeowners repay the financing through their property tax bill over the useful life of the installed products.
