One of America’s leading homebuilding companies announced Monday that they will include solar power systems as a standard feature in select communities throughout Central Florida.

The KB Home Built to Order homes allow home-buyers to pick and choose from seven house designs and modify multipurpose rooms to suit their needs. KB Home is now including solar power systems as standard, an initiative KB expect will save homeowners as much as 50% on their monthly energy bills when compared to a typical resale home.

For example, at KB Home’s Fisher Plantation in Apopka, a one-story, three bedroom home with the standard solar power system included, is estimated to save a homeowner over $1,200 annually on energy costs when compared to a typical resale home, KB Home said.

KB Home’s Fisher Plantation in Apopka will be the first community in the area to include solar power systems as standard.

“We’re excited to take a leading role in bringing solar power systems to the mainstream in Central Florida,” said George Glance, president of KB Home’s Central Florida division.

“While many love the year-round warmth and abundant sunshine we are lucky enough to enjoy here in Florida, staying comfortable in this weather can also take a toll on our wallets when we get the monthly electric bill. Consumers who buy a Built to Order  KB home with a standard solar power system get the value of a custom home-like experience plus the benefit of having the sun help reduce their energy bills.”

It’s positive news learning that this company is making renewable energy packages into a standard option.
