Homebuilder Meritage Homes has signed a national agreement to use the Echo solar system from PVT Solar Inc. as its exclusive solar product across all of its solar-powered communities. According to PVT Solar, the Echo solar system delivers more than twice as much energy as a basic solar PV system and enables Meritage to build homes that use 70% to 80% less energy than a standard code-built home.â�¨
‘Echo sets the standard for superior value in solar energy production and as an integrated solar system,’ says C.R. Herro, vice president of environmental affairs at Meritage Homes. ‘Last year, in a challenging economic environment, Meritage decided to include Echo as a standard feature in 17 extreme energy-efficient communities, and it paid off: Â Many of these communities are selling homes over three times faster than our competition.’
