With the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic causing local, state and federal health authorities to put shelter-in-place requirements into effect for most if not all cities for public safety precautions, families are spending more time than ever before in the confines of their own home.
While having the entire family together at home every day may be a source of comfort, with it comes a much larger reliance on the electricity needed to power electronic devices such as computers and televisions, kitchen appliances, heating, cooling, clothes washing, lighting and dish washing. That larger than normal energy usage results in a much larger utility bill at month’s end.
Homeowners in Santa Rita Ranch and Malone take advantage of the solar technology made possible by Lennar and SunStreet Energy Group, which converts the most clean and abundant natural energy source – the sun – into electricity on their rooftops.
Solar production from these families’ rooftops can be used to help offset what they would otherwise pay to their local utility. Then, the local utility company powers their home and they pay only the balance after their credit for solar energy produced. That means there may be cost savings each month, allowing families to spend that extra money on shopping, travel, entertainment, dining and other sources of fun, once these temporary distancing guidelines come to an end.
Families can also benefit from the knowledge that they are helping to protect the environment for generations to come by producing energy from a renewable source. This is an important factor for many families who make purchasing decisions with a keen eye on social responsibility.
Best of all, homes in Lennar’s Solar Communities include solar monitoring with SunStreet’s Lease Program. With solar monitoring, homeowners can keep track of their solar production and chart their home’s trends all within an easy to use mobile app.
An expert technician will complete a remote activation as well as an in-home system orientation by request, when available. Once the system has been activated, a Solar Advisor is available to help with any needs or questions they may have. Additionally, homeowners have access to program specific videos and frequently asked questions on the My SunStreet website.
