Privada, the luxury gated enclave in North Scottsdale, Arizona has gone Green and Solar with all new homes offered in the community.

In fact, the new homes come with a guarantee of heating and cooling energy usage. Environments for Living, a third party energy certification program, reports that the homes are up to 71 percent more energy efficient than other new code-compliant homes, and up to 99 percent more energy efficient than the average ten year old home.
The new homes at Privada will reduce the carbon footprint by up to 66 percent over other conventional code-compliant homes. A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment, and in particular climate change. It relates to the amount of greenhouse gases produced in our day-to-day lives through such things as burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating and transportation.
