New Better Buildings Accelerators focus on home energy improvement
June 12, 2015
To further advance energy efficiency in buildings, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced it is launching two new Better Buildings Accelerators to help American families improve the efficiency of their homes.
The HERO (home energy renovation opportunity) financing program allows homeowners in Western Riverside County to finance home energy and water efficiency improvements through their property taxes. It was announced that $50 million in home energy retrofits have been financed since the program was launched.
