They offer solar as an option on all their new homes, allowing buyers to more easily take certified high performance homes and make them low or zero-energy homes! 
As part of our Zero Energy Blueprint partnership with Peloquin, SEM recently installed this 7.1kw system on the 'Avanti', a home that embodies the values of the Fiori Hill neighborhood, one intentionally designed to foster community. Peloquin's Fiori Hill has seen a 40% solar adoption rate so far, highlighting the success of their ZEB program partnership.
