Largest Solar Homes Project In America

The Sacramento Municipal Utility District, SMUD, and Lennar Homes have signed an agreement that represents the largest solar new homes partnership in the United States.

The agreement will bring more than 1,200 high-efficient solar homes to the area.

Solar photovoltaic systems will be built into 1,254 new homes in 11 communities in the SMUD service territory. The first 506 homes will be constructed in the new Anatolia subdivision of Rancho Cordova and 79 new homes will be built in the Village Greens community of Natomas. Groundbreaking is planned for March.

The first 174 homes will be built in 2007; another 761 will be built in 2008; 476 in 2009; and 100 in 2010. Residents may save as much as 60% annually on their electric bills by using the sun's power to generate electricity. An added feature allows homeowners to monitor their PV electricity production and their energy use in real time over the Internet.
