Live in a Zero Carbon Home
How does the Solar Option Work?
Energy Efficient Homes
Grow Community homes are designed to be extremely energy efficient. We start with a well-constructed, highly insulated building envelope with impressive wall systems and insulation that exceeds Washington state energy code by 30% or better. High quality, double-pane windows bring in lots of natural light. Highly efficient heat pump systems make each home both comfortable and economical to live in.
Taking it to Net Zero
To meet the One Planet Living goal of Zero Carbon buildings by 2020, each Grow Community home comes with a forward-thinking, rooftop solar energy option with a goal of homes being net-zero.
Why Choose Solar
Why invest in solar panels if your Grow Community home is already so energy efficient? The solar choice is not only economical, it saves you money over time paying you back, and then some. As Washington¹s largest planned solar community, Grow neighborhoods will collectively save many tons of coal each year. That¹s a lot of blue sky over your head.
