For the first time in San Antonio, solar panels are becoming an option for homebuyers at an affordable price point, and in the kind of new homes that many people purchase: production homes by large, national builders, according to www.mysanatonio.com.
Lennar Homes recently opened a model home with solar panels in the Kallison Ranch neighborhood and will start offering solar panels as an option in all of its communities.
KB Home also will roll out solar panels as an option in all of its San Antonio communities this fall, and last week installed solar panels on a model home in its new La Fontana neighborhood.
Supporters of solar energy say it's a sign that green building has become more widespread in the market and that local homebuyers are growing increasingly sophisticated about energy efficiency.
