Henderson, Nevada [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Concordia Homes has announced the launch of Sommerset Community, the first solar-powered residential development in Nevada to feature GE ecomagination-certified solar products, as a standard on every home. Located in Henderson, near Las Vegas, Sommerset Community will debut in March and feature solar-powered homes that meet standards inspired by GE’s ecomagination Homebuilder Program.
Every home at Sommerset will include a roof-integrated GE Energy Brilliance solar electric system. These systems are designed to supply years of maintenance-free operation and seamlessly blend into the profile of the concrete roof tile. Each system will generate approximately 4,400 kilowatt-hours per year.
“It is a pleasure to be part of such a dynamic, energy-conscious approach to home building. Along with providing Henderson an environmentally friendly community, we’re excited to provide buyers with affordable homes that will save them money through lower energy bills,” said Gidget Graham, president of Concordia.
