This is part 4 of a series that describes how PACE financing is revolutionizing the home performance contracting industry. Homeowner Loreen Hasenin was looking for a way to get her A/C bills under control before the summer heat descended on her city of Murrieta, California. She hired Solaire Energy Systems to install solar panels using HERO financing. Her decision process mirrors that of many homeowners who find themselves facing a broken water heater or a failing HVAC system and need to replace or upgrade quickly. The beneficial terms of HERO’s PACE financing model allows homeowners to choose the higher-quality product or system that will reap long-term savings and make their home more comfortable, rather than having to go with the option that is cheapest up front, but less energy efficient.
