HERO PROGRAM FOR POMONA RESIDENTS...
The WRCOG HERO Program is offered through a partnership between Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG) and Renovate America, Inc. The Program’s purpose is to provide relatively low interest rate financing to spark the local economy by creating jobs and reducing utility costs, and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Program provides HERO Financing for permanently affixed energy efficiency, water efficiency, and renewable energy products (Eligible Products). HERO Financing is repaid through an assessment on your property tax bill over 5-20 years, based on the useful life of the products, and upon sale of the property, the balance generally stays with the property.
For more information, please visit the HERO website for Pomona residents.
