Union Bank® Advantage

HERO Loans

Want to remove your HERO financed loan? We can help.

The HERO (Home Energy Renovation Opportunity) Program is a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Program, which provides financing for energy-efficient, water-efficient and renewable energy products to homeowners in approved communities within California.

The financing provided by the HERO Program is repaid through annual property tax payments.

Reasons to remove your HERO loan:

  • HERO loans generally have higher interest rates than mortgage loans
  • HERO loans are not deductible as property taxes
  • HERO loans function as a lien on your property
  • HERO loans are tied to the house, not the homeowner, so the tax payment is passed on to whoever owns the home after you Refinance and save!

At Union Bank,® we can help you refinance1 to consolidate your HERO loan and lower your property tax bill!
