Why your next home should be EcoSmart
Our mission and passion is building the homes of the future. We not only have homes that promote clean living, great floor plans and flow, and the best tech on the market today — but that are comfortable in both summer and winter thanks to the GeoGrid™. Your utility operating costs will be lower, the home-value will be greater, and you can help make a real difference for our environment.
How we contribute to ecologically friendly living.
We strive to create residential and mixed-use communities that derive their energy from renewable, carbon free sources; providing affordable, sustainable, and ecologically friendly living. We do this by being HERS certified. That means that, while building your new home, we focus on all the building choices that affect the energy use of your Zero Energy Capable home.

Building efficient, HERS Certified homes takes a variety of features and techniques to save more energy than homes built to current code. The strategy includes modeling and advising for effective insulation systems, high-performance HVAC equipment, tight construction, and sealed ducts — among other features. The target for EcoSmart homes is a HERS rating of 25; meaning that it uses 25% of the energy of a standard, code-compliant home. That is an energy savings of 80%.
Benefits For The Home Owner
An energy storage system integrates with any solar system to store energy for when you need it. Here we see a forecast of an EcoSmart home’s energy consumption vs. energy production. During the day, energy production far exceeds consumption, giving the power storage system enough energy to store for overnight and emergency use.

Agile Energy For Smart Homes
Realizing An EcoSmart Future
Buying a home is the largest purchase of your lifetime. Your return on investment can be greatly increased by the industry standard, Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index. Economical housing elements and energy bills play a big role in affordability. HERS-rated, energy-efficient homes are the key to green living, providing better home comfort, lower running costs, and higher resale values. When you’re selling your home, a low HERS Index Score can compel a higher resale price. When you’re buying a home, you can anticipate the reduced cost of energy bills.
