TerraWise has built more Net-Zero Energy homes than any other builder in Jacksonville. However, this new concept in energy efficient home design is still relatively unfamiliar to most consumers.
A Net-Zero home generates as much power as it consumers resulting in electric bills that net to zero cost for the homeowner.* To achieve Net-Zero a home must include the highest energy-efficient design, energy efficient appliances and a power generation system – typically solar in Florida. Homes designed by TerraWise are able to achieve Net-Zero more cost effectively due to inherently better overall energy efficient design and already very low HERS ratings.
Here's how it works in Jacksonville when a TerraWise owner goes Net-Zero:
TerraWise homeowners usually see a quicker return on investment when adding solar to go Net-Zero.* The highly energy efficient design standards require fewer solar panels than typical homes. And, they enjoy low or net-zero energy bills every month for the 25-year life of the solar system.
Additionally, Net-Zero Energy homeowners have the satisfaction of doing their part in lowering the carbon footprint of their home to reduce its impacts on the environment.
That's real green building that pays real dividends to both the homeowner and the environment. The solar systems used by TerraWise Homes feature the latest technology providing feedback to a website so the efficiency of the Solar Panels can be monitored in real time and the energy savings displayed clearly for the homeowner.
