The New Home Co. and SunPower Corp., a solar technology and energy services provider, announced the partnership is making solar systems, battery storage, and at-home electric vehicle (EV) chargers standard features in its newest community, Eureka Grove.
All 72 homes in the Granite Bay, California, community will include a SunPower Equinox rooftop solar system, 13 kWh SunVault energy storage system, and Wallbox Pulsar Plus EV charger, creating a comprehensive energy management solution for the modern home buyer.
“Technology enhances homes and contributes to a modern lifestyle. Innovations like built-in solar and storage can have a lasting impact on families when it comes to reliability and affordability,” says Kevin Carson, Northern California president at The New Home Co. “Our first solar, storage, and EV-ready neighborhood is a milestone for the company, and we look forward to replicating the teamwork between energy services and architecture across future communities with SunPower to design today’s homes for tomorrow’s needs.”
With solar and storage, homeowners can generate electricity from their roofs, deploy stored energy during utility peak times when rates are the highest, and power essential loads during an outage. Homeowners can also leverage solar systems to power their Wallbox EV chargers, making charging more convenient and sustainable.
Homes with these features are available for purchase today and come equipped with additional tech-forward and environment-friendly features including energy-efficient appliances and vinyl dual-pane windows for improved insulation.
“The New Home Co. is creating communities fit for the future, providing residents energy savings and peace of mind,” says Matt Brost, senior director of new-homes sales for SunPower. “The obvious combination of solar, storage, and EV charging is the future of new-home communities nationwide, providing homeowners with convenience and the ability to make a positive impact on the planet.”
