Phoenix new home builders are beginning to jump on the solar bandwagon as they expand their product lines to include solar electrical systems as either a standard option or an upgrade. Active adult communities seem to dominate the solar offerings for new homes in the Phoenix area but home builders know that new home buyers are looking to save money while taking advantage of the increased energy efficiency that new construction can offer.
Both Taylor Morrison and Meritage homes seem to have the greatest number of models that offer solar as a standard option. Pulte Homes appears to have focused its standard solar options on their active adult communities (55+ years old) while Elliott Homes have solar designated communities in the Laveen area.
The image above shows where the new home builders are concentrating their solar options.
