Home builder KB Home says it will include solar power systems as a standard feature of its custom-built homes in select communities in central Florida. KB Home's Fisher Plantation in Apopka will be the first community in the area to include solar power systems as standard.

To illustrate the potential benefit of solar power systems and other energy-efficient features of its homes, KB Home provides consumers with its Energy Performance Guide, which shows an estimate of both monthly energy costs for each home as designed as well as estimated monthly savings over a typical resale home.

For example, at KB Home's Fisher Plantation in Apopka, a one-story, three bedroom home with the standard solar power system included is estimated to save a homeowner over $1,200 annually on energy costs when compared to a typical resale home, according to the company.
