There’s been a lot of optimistic talk going around regarding the HERO program in connection with homeowners making energy-efficient improvements and adding solar-energy systems to their homes. Of course, with a program called HERO, chances are it’s a money-saving opportunity that’s worth everyone’s attention.
Originally made possible by “Property Assessed Clean Energy legislation,” HERO is specially designed to help make energy-efficient upgrades possible for qualifying homeowners. HERO stands for “Home Energy Renovation Opportunity,” and it allows government and elite contractors, such as Solar Optimum, to combine forces to make those upgrades, particularly solar, financially possible.
How a homeowner finances their solar-energy system is crucial, affecting both the initial cost and any ongoing maintenance costs that can impact monthly and long-term savings.
And purchasing through the HERO Program offers unique financial advantages, including ownership without upfront investment, valuable consumer protections, and maximization of long-term savings and benefits. Homeowners can take advantage of:
- Low fixed rates on 100% of their solar project when HERO financed
- Flexible repayment terms of 5 to 20 years
- Opportunity to borrow up to 15% of a home's equity value
- A HERO assessment on property that has no impact on personal credit score
- No upfront investment, including fees and labor, when financing a solar system
- Potential tax-deductible Interest on HERO payments
- Option of making payments through property tax assessment bill
- Transfer of remaining balance to the new owner if home is sold
Of course, partnership with the HERO program does comes with a price ¾ for the contractor. Reputation is key! Only the most highly regarded and approved clean-energy contractors ¾ such as Solar Optimum ¾ are entrusted to partner with HERO.
