Generating renewable energy at home, particularly solar power, continues to gain ground as prices fall and homeowners and builders come to understand the long-term value.
While residential wind power has failed to gain traction, home solar power continues to grow. From production home builders incorporating solar as part of their offerings to affordable home storage batteries, it’s easer than ever to reduce a home’s environmental impact and reduce energy bills.
Solar Powered Production Homes
Production homebuilders are well known for having very sharp pencils. Any change, any upgrade to a proven formula must pay off for their homeowners and the bottom line. Here’s a look at some production builders that are making solar power a part of their product lines.
The Pulte ZNE home prototype, which features a solar system from Solar City, aligns with California’s long-term zero net energy goals by leveraging advanced design, construction and on-site renewable energy solutions. The home’s design combines airtight building methods, highly efficient insulation, HVAC, lighting technologies and more, with on-site solar energy production to offset the home’s greatly reduced energy consumption.
