ZER Homes are characterized mainly by their high level of energy efficiency. In fact, they’re up to 50% more energy-efficient than other homes. Zero Energy Ready Homes are engineered to push a zero net energy use with the help of renewable energy and reduced energy demand. With the low energy demand, a renewable energy system can offset most annual energy consumption. Bottom line, lower energy bills.
There are other benefits that you will enjoy from the Zero Energy Ready Standard.
With a Zero Energy Ready Home, you could have no energy bills, other than a monthly electric hook-up fee. And with features like thicker walls and triple-paned windows, a home can create as much solar energy from its solar collectors as the home uses- resulting in a zero net energy bill.
Living more comfortably and saving money is what any homebuyer wants. And in Stapleton’s 11th neighborhood, Beeler Park, 10 % of every home collection will be built to Zero Energy Ready Home standards.
