Coalinga is the latest Valley city to jump on board the HERO Property Assessed Clean Energy program to help residents pay for home renovation projects that help the environment.

HERO finances up to 100% of the cost and installation of different water- and energy-saving products such as solar, heating and cooling systems, efficient windows and doors, insulation and water-saving artificial turf.

Payments are made through property tax bills for up to 20 years. If the property is sold before the financing is paid in full, the remaining payments can be passed onto the new owner.

Nine other communities have already signed on including Clovis, Fresno, Kingsburg, Parlier, Reedley, Sanger and Selma. Kerman’s program launches in July. The program has funded more than $11.5 million in upgrades locally so far.
