Zero Energy is proud to partner with the HERO Program.
One of the biggest obstacles homeowners have in upgrading to an energy efficient home is high upfront installation costs. The price of redoing your air conditioning, replacing an old furnace, or installing solar panels may seem overwhelming.
Fortunately, Zero’s comprehensive home energy upgrade can end up costing you less than any one of these services by itself.
Thanks to the HERO Program, you can upgrade your home for $0 out of pocket and start saving on energy costs right away!
The HERO Program is a means of solar financing that makes efficiency upgrades more accessible than ever before.
HERO stands for Home Energy Renovation Opportunity.
Other solar financing options may involve lengthy approval processes, high interest rates, and complicated transfer procedures. The goal of Zero Energy’s partnership with the HERO Program is to make solar financing quick, easy, and accessible.
HERO uses a community program called Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) . This means that your solar loans are based primarily on the equity of your home — not your personal credit score. You can qualify for solar loans of up to 15% of your home’s value.
Additionally, the HERO Program makes paying back your solar loans a cinch. You can simply make payments as a line item on your property taxes. Easy.
An efficiency upgrade doesn’t only increase the value of your home: it also helps you save significantly on your monthly energy costs.
With solar energy alone, you can see savings of 50%-100% of your energy bill. Add in Zero’s energy-efficient appliances, doors, and windows, and watch those savings grow even more.
In many cases, the savings achieved by upgrading your home are enough to cover the payments for your solar loans. That means a zero net cost for you!
Financing through the HERO Program has the potential to save you even more money as the interest on your solar loans may be tax deductible.
The HERO Program’s solar financing is more than an investment. It’s a self-sustaining financial system for a renewable world.
