Meritage Homes does it again. The homebuilder known for its environmentally friendly communities has a new partner. For the new Pinnacles at Stonebrae community in Hayward, CA, homebuyers have the option to purchase a SunPower solar system complete with storage from Sunverge Energy. SunPower and Meritage Homes have a long standing relationship. SunPower solar systems are available at Meritage Homes communities throughout the country.
“With energy storage, homeowners can store the power their solar systems produce, enabling them to keep the lights on and serve other critical loads in a power outage,” said C.R Herro of Meritage Homes.
Meritage Homes commitment to the environment goes beyond solar. Earlier this year the company began working on California’s first zero net energy community. The first of those homes should be available this summer.
“Meritage Homes has a visionary approach to offering smart, proven technologies that enhance their customers’ lives and the communities in which they live,” said Howard Wenger, SunPower president, business units. “SunPower solar power systems combined with energy storage technology help homeowners take control of their energy costs, while providing the additional peace of mind provided by back-up power when they need it.”
The 42 homes of the Pinnacles at Stonebrae community offer a glimpse into what solar + storage systems will look like on a larger scale.
