Since it started up in 2011, the HERO Property Assessed Clean Energy (HERO PACE) Program has completed more than 50,000 residential projects. That may not seem like much, in a state whose 39 million inhabitants are still hoping to see the end of the worst drought in their recorded history, but HERO is a major California success story.

3 Billion Gallons Of Water Savings

Since it started up in December 2011, Renovate America’s HERO program has completed projects that are expected to save:

  • an estimated 3.00 billion gallons of water savings over the estimated lifetime of installed products
  • 7.99 billion kWh of energy
  • 2.16 million tons of CO2 emissions

  • 10,336 New Jobs

    This program has also as a result of all energy saving projects generated $2.11 billion in economic activity and been responsible for the creation of 10,336 new jobs.

    San Diego’s Mauzy Heating, Air & Solar has had to hire 26 new employees to keep up with the demand.

    “In addition to doing a comprehensive energy audit on the house, We are able to offer HERO financing for the homeowner to install everything from solar panels, efficient heating and air conditioning units, updated doors and windows, new roofing, and more,” said Company President Matt Mauzy.
