Last month, I attended NAHB’s midyear meeting in Miami and had the pleasure of sitting in on a presentation by Daniel Swift, president and CEO of Des Moines-based architecture group BSB Design.
Oakwood Homes, Solar City partner on no-cost PVs for homebuyers
Monthly leasing fee at Oakwood covers installation as well
A partnership between Solar City of San Mateo, Calif., and Oakwood Homes in Denver allows for solar panels on the houses at no cost to homebuyers. Homeowners can cover the cost of the rooftop solar energy systems through a monthly leasing fee while reducing their utility bills. Buyers who opt for solar panels do not require Oakwood to redesign their homes because the partnership accommodates for installation.
