The Dow Chemical Company and Imagine Homes, a San Antonio-based homebuilder leading the nation in new high performance green building technology, unveiled the first solar standard community in San Antonio. This new community is leading the way in sustainable living by incorporating the award-winning DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingle - an integrated solar roofing system that protects the home and generates electricity - as a standard feature on all homes in their Willis Ranch subdivision. This latest offering of Dow’s Solar Shingles gives homebuyers in San Antonio the first community that combines Imagine Homes’ superior homebuilding design with the most cutting-edge renewable solution on the market.
“DOW POWERHOUSE was the ideal partner for us on the Willis Ranch community in San Antonio,” said Imagine Homes President John Friesenhahn. “They enable us to offer our customers a breakthrough roofing solution from one of the biggest names in home energy-efficiency. A roof that protects the home, uses sunlight to power it, and provides superior aesthetic appeal for our exterior design is exactly what this market is looking for. There is no other product on the market like it."
Homeowners that purchase a Willis Ranch home will get a complete POWERHOUSE roofing system that saves money on their annual energy bills, reducing the overall cost of home ownership and generating an unprecedented financial return on their home investment. The home also comes with a monitoring system that provides real-time readouts of electricity generation and home electricity usage. Homebuyers can also choose to upgrade the standard sized system to a bigger array that will offset even more of their energy bill. Expected savings range anywhere from $4,000-$10,000 in the first year, plus the POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles will increase the overall value of their home.
The combination of Imagine Homes with DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles are helping to redefine green living in San Antonio, and are working to meet Mayor Castro’s, the city of San Antonio’s and Build San Antonio Green’s goals to increase solar and reduce energy consumption in the area.
