Riverbank Launches HERO PACE Program to Help Homeowner Conserve Water and Energy

In an effort to combat the drought and help residents reduce energy use, the City of Riverbank officially launched the HERO (Home Energy Renovation Opportunity) PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) Program in November 2014.  This program enables homeowners and commercial property owners to pay off energy- and water-efficiency improvements through their property tax bill. 

HERO offers low-fixed interest rates and flexible payment terms of up to 20 years, with repayments made through your property taxes.  You can use HERO to finance energy efficient projects that can increase your property value, lower your monthly utility bills, make you more comfortable in your come and contribute to making your community more energy independent. 

A wide variety of energy- and water-saving products are available through the HERO Program, including:
  • Whole-home heating and cooling (HVAC) systems
  • Solar Power Panel Installation
  • Energy-saving windows, skylights and doors
  • Roofing and Insulation
  • High-efficiency toilet, faucet, and showerhead installations
  • Drip irrigation systems
