Your solar-powered, eco-friendly home in Villages at Heritage Springs has been designed from top to bottom to provide you with superior energy performance. In fact, these smart homes exceed the National Energy Standard by 50%. That means you’ll enjoy lower utility bills, added value and the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to keep the earth healthier, each and every day.

SunPower’s elegant SunTile® technology blends naturally into your home’s design. More important, this highly efficient solar system converts the sun’s energy into electricity that powers your lights, appliances, television and other electronic devices.

The SunPower® system can save up to 60% on your electric bill.1 When your system produces more electricity than your home is using, the excess electricity is sent back to the utility company, your electric meter spins backward and you receive a credit that will help offset your monthly electric bill. And you’ll enjoy another financial benefit in choosing a solar home in Villages at Heritage Springs: a one-time federal tax credit equal to 30% of the price of the system, valued at up to $4,000.

Your SunPower system turns itself on automatically in the morning and off automatically at night. There is no maintenance required. For added convenience, you can track system performance with the SunPower Monitoring System®, using your wireless in-home display, computer or mobile phone. Plus, as a clean, renewable energy, solar power helps reduce carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Over 30 years, your SunPower system will save the energy equivalent of drilling for 143 barrels of oil !

Here are some of the other money-saving features included in every residence: Double-Pane, Low-Emissivity Windows. A typical home with single-pane windows loses 30% of its heating and cooling through its windows and doors, according to the California Energy Commission. Not the homes in Villages at Heritage Springs. Here, dual-pane, low-emissivity windows feature insulating materials between the panes. The result: you stay cooler in summer and warmer in winter and you save even more on your monthly energy bills.

Energy-Efficient Lighting
Lighting accounts for 25 percent of an average home's electricity bill. Up to half of all lights in Villages at Heritage Springs homes feature Energy Star®-qualifying fluorescent lighting, which uses one-fourth to one-third less electricity and lasts up to 10 times longer than conventional lighting.

Energy-Efficient Air Conditioning & Heating
Each home includes an energy-efficient gas furnace, along with an Energy Starqualifying central air conditioner, which uses less energy to cool your home. These systems have high Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) and Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) ratings, which means better efficiency and lower energy bills. Also, each home is tested to ensure minimum duct leakage, and all ducts come with upgraded insulation.

Tankless Water Heater
Traditional tank water heaters lose heat in between uses and these losses cost you money. By heating water only when needed, Energy Star-qualified gas tankless water heaters cut energy expenses up to 40% and save space, while providing continuous hot water delivery. Digital controls give you more precise temperature control. Other ecobenefits include lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Cool Roof Tiles
Your home is built with Energy Star-rated and Cool Roof Rating Council-approved Cool Roof Tiles, beautiful in form and function. Cool roofs effectively reflect the sun’s heat, resulting in up to 30% cooling energy savings. Cool Roof Tiles also benefit your solar system because solar modules perform more efficiently at cooler temperatures.
