Southern California Has Largest Solar Home Development

March 01, 2004

The green home community at Ladera Ranch was dedicated November 2003. It includes 450 homes with solar electric systems as standard features, and is the largest in the United States to date to include solar electricity. In addition to the solar systems, homes are built to surpass Title-24, the California energy code, by 20%. Astropower provided the solar modules, and many homes use the new integrated solar roofing tile developed with support from California's PIER (Public Interest Energy Research) program.
