Home Energy Renovation Opportunity (HERO) Program
The City of Placentia is proud to join other cities in the HERO Program offered through the Western Riverside Council of Governments. The HERO Program allows property owners - both residential and commercial - to finance various energy efficiency improvements through the State of California's Property Assessed Clean Energy program. Property owners can work with HERO Program representatives to determine the extent of energy efficiency projects as well as how much they want to assess their own property to pay for the project.
The City Council adopted a resolution in 2013 which allows willing property owners to enter into a voluntary contractual assessment to finance the installation of various energy and water efficiency improvements. The HERO Program is administered by the Western Riverside Council of Governments. The City entered into a Joint Powers Agreement with the Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG) to offer the HERO Program to residents of Placentia.
