AUSTIN (KXAN) — Just 15 miles northeast of downtown Austin is a new community redefining sustainable living. Whisper Valley is a community made up of zero-energy capable homes, or homes built and designed to produce a large portion (if not, all) of their own energy.

How? By using geothermal energy, solar energy and smart home technology.

Whisper Valley homes are outfitted with solar panels and geothermal power to help offset energy usage.

David Currie, Community Relations Manager at Whisper Valley, has been with the development since the first homeowner moved in back in 2017.
