Lennar Homebuilding, a San Ramon, Calif.-based residential developer, is constructing three solar-driven communities in the Windemere community of San Ramon. The homes in the three communities – Paloma, Escalante and Stafford Place – range in square footage from 2,600 to 4,300 square feet.
According to the company, all 275 homes will come equipped with a roof-integrated solar electric system from PowerLight, a subsidiary of SunPower Corp., as a standard feature. In February, the company announced that any new community the company constructs in the San Francisco Bay area will be equipped with a roof-integrated solar electric systems from PowerLight.

‘Our commitment to energy conservation and enhanced value for our buyers has guided this decision to install solar systems in these homes,’ says Les Lifter, Lennar's vice president of marketing. ‘Our Bay area customers are telling us that solar power is a value-added element to their home buying decision.’
