These builders represent large companies that recognize the importance of offering high-performance homes as a critical part of their product lines.
Zero Energy Ready Homes (ZERHs) are key to the future of the housing industry. This type of home, which outperforms standard buildings and delivers the opportunity for ultra-low or nonexistent energy bills, is also an exciting growth industry. While a relatively small percentage of home builders are constructing them today, their popularity will likely keep rising as their success becomes well known. Everyone involved in expanding the number of ZERHs, from builders to buyers, are helping transform the housing market, and ensuring that more American homebuyers have easy access to these self-contained, renewable energy systems that offset most or all of the home’s annual energy use.
