NM: Santa Fe Gets “Zero Energy” Homes

Natural Homes of Prudential Santa Fe Real Estate has, for the first time, brought together the knowledge and evolved technology to construct a comfortable home with a net annual utility bill of “0”. At a price a working family can afford, these solar homes are designed to be healthy to live in and can be built almost anywhere and in any style.

Natural Homes has delivered LEED certified Zero Energy Homes to buyers for less than $339,000 with some homes garnering as much as $25,000 in State and Federal tax credits. LEED stands for “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design” and is a Federal program offering up to $9.00 per square foot Federal tax credits plus solar tax credits.

For some time the builder community claimed that these homes were too expensive to build, but with the evolution of building science and the drop in the cost of solar electric panels, builders within New Mexico and around the country have proven that these superior homes can be built for around the same price as older, less efficient homes. With the volatility of energy costs these homes provide residents savings from day one and energy security into the future.
