New Home Community Features Built-In Solar Systems


Meritage Homes has opened a new home community in Vacaville, Calif., featuring solar electric power systems from SunPower Corp. as a standard feature.

Each of the 45 homes in the new Encore Community will be equipped with a 2.3 kW SunPower SunTile system. Meritage states the homes were built to exceed state and federal energy efficiency standards by 35% and will save homeowners up to 70% on their electric utility bills.

‘We're very pleased to be offering these zero-energy homes in the Vacaville area,’ said Jeff Jacobs, vice president of Meritage Homes' Northern California/Bay Area Division. ‘Encore homeowners will benefit from both substantially reduced utility bills and the satisfaction that they are helping to improve the environment by using clean, renewable energy.’
