USGBC member_blkZero Net Energy Homes are setting the standard for homebuilding in the 21st Century. Through the use of state of the art technology, each home has the capacity to generate enough renewable energy to offset its annual energy needs. You can purchase a brand new home currently for sale, or work with our architect and design team to create your own zero energy home. Any way you chose, you can be sure to get a home filled with sunlight, clean air quality, integrated indoor/outdoor living areas, energy saving features, and quality construction.

If you think you cannot afford one of these beautiful new homes, think again! New Home Owners received a tax CREDIT in an amount of approximately $22,000 (and up)! Check out the “economics” of Zero Net Energy and you will see the cost comparisons of owning a traditional home and a Zero Net Energy Home!

All of our homes are designed and built to the highest energy efficiency and green building standards.  In fact, each home is built to comply with the strict standards for ENERGY STAR, EPA Indoor AirPlus, USGBC LEED for Homes, and DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes certification.  Thoughtful selection of building materials, HVAC equipment, water efficient fixtures, and appliances help create a synergistic relationship between occupant comfort, indoor air quality and building efficiency.  By reducing overall energy demand and by selecting environmentally-preferred materials, our homes have a greatly reduced carbon footprint compared to a standard new home.  And as an added benefit, these  homes are built to last hundreds of years, further increasing their sustainability.
