Renewable Energy Options

Go net zero

Combine solar panels and one or more Powerwall home batteries to power your home independently from the utility grid.

A net zero energy rating means that your home produces as much energy as it consumes, but is still connected to the utility grid for periods of high demand.

 

Emergency backup

In the event of a utility outage, Powerwall can power your entire home or select appliances with an uninterrupted supply of electricity.

When installed along with solar panels, Powerwall will allow your home to use solar generated electricity during a utility outage.

Community Spaces

The shared spaces will be managed by the nonprofit component of Greenhouse Commons POA.  The grounds will be maintained, community building built and cared for, trails built and ammenities added as the POA budget allows.  The current POA dues are estimated at $50 per  home per month.
