New Albany Real Estate News: Nation First Private Home Builder to offer Solar Power Units in homes!

Courtesy of publicdomainpictures.netThis week America’s largest private homebuilder, Shea homes has become the first homebuilder to offer solar panel electric units in its homes.

In co-operation with BP Solar, the worlds leaders in solar electric energy, the builder says that by using solar panels to contribute to homes electriticy usage bills can be lowered by 60% and overall energy usage decreases by 30%. The three kilowatt units provide protection against energy price rises and of course in this current economic climate many are trying to cut costs. Solar energy certainly does appear to be a great way forward! All in part of the nation going green!

Asides from the more obvious benefits, it is expected that these units actually directly contribute to a homes resale value and marketability due to the added value which these units bring to the property and to the life of those who occupy the building. Something which is very attractive to buyers who are looking to ensure a secure future home value as well as lower running costs.

The green revolution is clearly here and taking hold of real estate across America starting in central Ohio!
