HERO program’s green-energy loans leave Southern California homeowners in red, critics say-media-3

Amalitsa Anastasiou took out a $40,000 loan from HERO, a local version of Property Assessed Clean Energy or PACE. Critics contend PACE lets unethical contractors prey on vulnerable homeowners. She’s working with her bank to avoid foreclosure. Last August Renovate agreed to pay $4 million to settle a lawsuit brought by Riverside County District Attorney Mike Hestrin and five other Southern California district attorneys alleging violations of state consumer protection laws.
