Lennar to build nation's largest solar community

Lennar announced a partnership with PowerLight Corporation and Roseville Electric to build the nation's largest solar community. The Sacramento division of Lennar will integrate photovoltaic systems and upgraded energy efficiency measures into 450 new homes slated to be built in Roseville over the next two years.

The PowerLight SunTile solar electric system will be installed as a standard feature on each home. PowerLight's SunTile is a roof-integrated technology, blending beautifully and seamlessly into the homes' design.

The benefits of this solar community include significant utility bill reductions for Lennar customers, and the generation of completely emissions-free electricity. By producing clean, renewable electricity, the solar community will reduce CO2 emissions and reduce dependence on fossil fuels in quantities equivalent to planting more than 65 acres of trees, and not burning 57,000 barrels of oil.
