Solar powered electricity and hot water, along with thermostat controls, are offered as a single package, to new home buyers in the Raleigh, NC, area.

Homebuilder Meritage Homes is offering an Echo solar system from EchoFirst, installed by local firm Southern Energy Management (SEM).

The Echo system is designed to deliver twice the overall energy of a basic solar electric photovoltaic (PV) system by using solar panels that also captures heat, for hot water use in the home. As a result, the builder offers homes that use 70%-80% less energy than a standard code-built home. Energy Star-qualified thermostat controls are also designed to automatically reduce heating and cooling bills by at least another 10% and offers smartphone-enabled remote control of the home HVAC system.
