KB Home to Provide Solar Power as a
KB Home, an American homebuilder, recently announced a new initiative to provide solar power systems for its new homes as a standard feature in 10 Southern California communities. The photovoltaic solar systems will potentially help KB homeowners reduce their monthly energy bills and cost of homeownership, while also benefiting the environment. The solar power systems could also help qualify homeowners for a federal tax credit.
While KB Home has provided solar power systems as an option for its homebuyers in select communities in California and Colorado for a number of years, this is the first time it will build entire communities featuring solar power systems for every home. SunPower, a manufacturer of the solar panels and systems, will provide the solar technology. KB Home has already begun offering the solar power systems at its Newbury at the Enclave community in Eastvale, Manzanita at Paseo del Sol community in Temecula and Monterey at Otay Ranch community in Chula Vista. Five additional Southern California communities featuring solar power systems for every home will open over the next sixty days, and two more are expected to open in the fall of 2011.
