Matera Plan #303 — Mar, 2013

Matera Plan #303 (modified)

A happy homeowner recently wrote ESHP owner Dave Jenkins, to let him know the good news about his brand new Energy Smart Home. (modified Matera model Plan #303). First, he said that everyone believes his home is much larger than it’s 1,778 square feet, due to it’s open floor plan and efficient use of space.

"We've been keeping the thermostat at 75 (which is actually a bit lower than I would prefer, but at least it gives us a scientifically conservative estimate of the awesomeness of this place), and we haven't even broken the $60/month mark for electricity bills. I'm thinking our annual total will be right around the $600 range."

“My wife and I would like to extend a huge THANK YOU for helping us take our next step toward sustainability without sacrificing luxury.”

Oct. 15, 2013 Update

"I'm writing to let you know that, with the help of our utility provider's rebate program, my wife and I are putting some photovoltaics on our house. We should be at or beyond energy neutral by mid January. Smile, man -- you're making a living and a difference. Thanks a bunch."
-- Steve P.
Melbourne Beach, FL

March 28, 2014 Update

"... installed a 3.8kW photovoltaic system this past November, we have so far accumulated about 500kWh in our "reserve" meaning if we hit a point in the summer where we're using more energy than we produce, we dip into that reserve. We got huge rebates on the PV so it should pay for itself in 5-7 years and then we'll have about 20 years of return on investment in the form of free energy. Building an Energy Smart Home reduced the required amount of photovoltaics by about 50% (relative to a standard home). That translates to about $15,000 saved." -- Steve P.

Summerville Plan #109 — Dec, 2012

The Summerville, Plan# 109, is one of ESHP’s best selling designs. It has been constructed and sold numerous times by several builders, but the cutting-edge Gainesville builder Tommy Williams Homes has done so with outstanding results in regarding both sales and energy-efficiency. We believe the two are connected.
