Renovate America’s HERO Program is now active in more than 400 communities, making this Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program available to over 8.5 million households. Speaking from a HERO homeowner’s property, Mayor of Palmdale, Jim Ledford, said, “I think HERO can be very successful in our city. We need to get more people aware of the opportunity, and transform our city.” HERO is helping grow local economies across America by enabling property owners to finance energy-efficient and renewable energy improvements.
