Florida builder offers solar power as a standard feature

Fort Lauderdale-based home builder Stellar Homes Group has committed to solar power all the way; not only as a standard feature for its new homes but also as the energy source for the grand opening of its new community Cavalia Estates in Davie, Florida. Cavalia is a private enclave of 10 homesites featuring two-story floorplans with five or six bedrooms priced from the low $800,000s, including solar panels.

Guests will receive detailed information on the home designs, floorplans and standard features, including solar panels and a plethora of additional green features of the homes which can be built on the eight half-acre to one-third acre homesites in the picturesque  and conveniently located community.

"With solar power, hybrid water heaters, LED lighting, low flow plumbing fixtures and triple the insulation required we provide as standard, Cavalia homeowners can save nearly $300 to $340 per month in utility costs, in addition to available tax credits. At Cavalia we pave the way for green home living that delivers great value in a beautifully designed home," said Stellar Homes Group Managing Partner Larry Baum.

Each solar panel system has a minimum retail value of $16,828 per home, and will be offered standard to buyers without raising prices to offset costs providing an estimated energy cost savings of approximately $81,000 over 20 years.

Two home designs will be available at Cavalia Estates. The Lexington with 3,727 square feet and five bedrooms and the Arlington with 4,075 square feet and six bedrooms. The Arlington boasts a spacious open floorplan with huge gathering room, kitchen with island and a spacious breakfast area that flows comfortably into living and dining rooms. The Lexington offers a large loft upstairs with 6 bedrooms and 5 baths.
