A major homebuilder tests the market for climate-conscious homes

Jordan McDonald of Emerging Tech Brew reports on a homebuilder that is making climate-conscious homes.

The C3 Take
  • KB Homes, a California-based homebuilder, is a building set of all-electric, all-battery powered communities.
  • Totalling 219 homes, these houses will be built with electric heat pumps and solar panels.
  • Although it represents only a small share of KB’s portfolio, this project shows that markets are responding to consumer demands for sustainability.

“The houses, replete with everything from solar panels to heat pumps, will range from $490,000 to $600,000, and are designed to create ‘a redundant power system,’ Bridleman said. KB’s partners on the project include Schneider Electric, Kia, the Advanced Power and Energy Program at UC Irvine, Southern California Edison, SunPower, and the Department of Energy, which provided a $6.5 million grant to the project.”
