Energy Costs - a hot topic of discussion with everyone these days and anywhere you can SAVE energy - well, that’s real news. Ardiente by Shea Homes is a community that offers what they call SheaXero, The No Electric Bill Home.
Here at Ardiente you’ll see how good a new home feels with no electric bill. No other Active Adult resort community can compare to Ardiente in North Las Vegas for its blend of extraordinary resort lifestyle features and a great value too. Every new Trilogy home is a SheaXero NO ELECTRIC BILL home that comes complete with solar. No electric bill. No extra charge. No kidding. Now that’s a sweet deal!
Available in Nevada, Arizona, California, Florida and Washington at all Shea Active Lifestyle and Trilogy Communities, the objective of SheaXero Homes is to achieve net-zero electric bills by generating as much electricity as they consume through a blend of energy-efficient features and a solar power system that is included in the home’s purchase price.
Shea’s partnership with SolarCity, a national leader in clean energy services, will make net-zero the standard offering and one of the largest net-zero electric home projects in the U.S. This partnership allows SolarCity to provide solar services to homeowners in Nevada and Florida for the first time.
“With electricity prices and pollution levels on the rise, American homeowners want better energy choices,” said Walter Cuculic, SolarCity’s national manager of home builder programs. “We partnered with Shea Homes to make clean energy accessible and affordable for more home buyers.”
The solar panels SolarCity installs on SheaXero homes will generate clean, renewable energy that saves money and offsets electricity consumption. The homes will feature a suite of 11 energy-saving features, including energy-efficient Trane® HVAC systems, Jenn-Air® Energy Star® appliances, high-performance insulation and dual-pane, low-e windows.
“SheaXero homeowners can save thousands of dollars per year on energy costs,” said Rick Andreen, president of Shea Homes Active Lifestyle Communities. “Net-zero homes protect owners from the impact of electricity rate increases while safeguarding the environment for the next generation.”
While tastes evolve and technologies improve, Shea livability is a quality that never goes out of style. Shea is part of a family-owned company that has proudly been building new homes since 1881.
From their choice of home styles and locations to the quality of materials and workmanship they use on each and every new home, the end result is value and caring about the people they build for. You’ll see and feel it. It’s what they call the Shea Difference.
Shea Homes Active Lifestyle Communities (aka Trilogy communities) are high-end retirement resort communities offering a new choice in living to those looking for an exciting lifestyle that revolves around wellness, exploration, continued learning and close personal connections.
Shea Homes is one of the oldest and largest private homebuilders in the U.S. Since its founding in 1968, they have closed in excess of 86,000 homes.
SheaXero is available at all Shea Active Lifestyle and Trilogy Communities, with certain exceptions based on plan and home site orientation. The new standard has been introduced to buyers in all Trilogy and Shea Homes Active Lifestyle communities across the country.
