MIAMI – June 1, 2016 – Stellar Homes Group announced a plan to introduce PV solar systems as a standard feature in all of its new homes, making it the first company in South Florida to do so.

The switch is part of a growing U.S. trend to make homes as green and energy efficient as possible.

In addition to the solar cells, Stellar's new homes will be green in several other ways, most notably their use of hybrid water heaters, low flow shower heads and passive solar day lighting through the positioning of windows and doors.

The PV solar systems will have a retail value of $9,160 to $16,128 per home, Stellar says, and will be offered to buyers without raising prices. The systems, which will be installed by Orlando-based Solar-Ray, come with a 30-year warranty.

"Our 5Kw PV solar panel package, combined with Stellar Homes Group's additional energy conservation features, is expected to result in an estimated energy cost savings of approximately $81,000 over 20 years," says Stellar Homes Group Vice President Tony Valle. "Our homebuyers can choose a solar package to suit their needs and can take advantage of the 30 percent federal tax credit."
