Lennar Offers Solar Roofs in New Homes in Bay Area

San Ramon, California [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] New communities constructed by Lennar Homebuilding in the greater San Francisco Bay market will be equipped with SunTile, a roof-integrated solar electric system from PowerLight, a subsidiary of SunPower Corporation, as a standard feature. In 2006, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation (Senate Bill 1) aimed at establishing California as the nation’s leader in solar energy. By 2011, his Million Solar Roofs Plan will provide incentives to builders and homeowners who install solar power in new homes and convert to solar energy in existing homes.
