“I’m very excited about the HERO program because it will make energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades more affordable for homeowners– improving our customers’ sense of comfort in their homes while reducing their energy bills over time. HERO can be a game changer for my business and my customers,” says Steve Burbridge, co-owner of local contractors Anthony Plumbing, Heating & Cooling.
There a resources for contractors through HERO such as an integrated software platform that helps connect contractors with homeowners and hundreds of thousands of eligible products. HERO also offers low-interest working capital and marketing resources to help small home improvement contractors expand their businesses.
Homeowners qualify for the HERO program based on equity in the property and a proven track record of on-time mortgage and property tax payments.
And Missouri is not the only state offering a program like this. In California, where PACE financing began, HERO has been used by more than 66,000 homeowners since 2012 to make more than $1.5 billion in efficiency improvements, create more than 13,500 local jobs and generate more than $2.7 billion in local economic activity.
