Sierra Park Energy Star & Solar Electric Homes

To earn the ENERGY STAR label, a home must meet guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These homes are at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC), and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20-30% more efficient than standard homes!

Sierra Park Property Development, LLC are the only developers in Quincy, California that have earned the ENERGY STAR label and are excited to inform you about all of the great ENERGY STAR benefits!

FEATURES OF OUR ENERGY STAR QUALIFIED NEW HOMES

EFFECTIVE INSULATION

Properly installed and inspected insulation in floors, walls, and attics ensures even temperatures throughout the house, reduced energy use, and increased comfort.

HIGH PERFORMANCE WINDOWS

Energy efficient windows employ advanced technologies, such as protective coatings and improved frames, to help keep heat in during the winter and out during summer. These windows also block damaging ultraviolet sunlight that can discolor carpets and furnishings.

TIGHT CONSTRUCTION AND DUCTING

Sealing holes and cracks in the home’s “envelope” and in heating and cooling duct systems helps reduce drafts, moisture, dust, pollen, and noise. A tightly sealed home improves comfort and indoor air quality while reducing utility bills and maintenance.

EFFICIENT HEATING EQUIPMENT

In addition to using less energy to operate, energy efficient heating systems can be quieter, reduce indoor humidity, and improve the overall comfort of the home. When properly installed into a tightly sealed home, this equipment won’t have to work so hard to heat the home.

BENEFITS TO HOMEOWNERS

PEACE OF MIND

Home buying is complex enough without having to know all the details of energy-efficient construction. Instead, look for the government-backed ENERGY STAR label to easily identify homes that are truly energy efficient. Find the house of your dreams and enjoy peace of mind knowing that it also meets strict energy efficiency guidelines.

LOWER OWNERSHIP COST

Compared with standard homes, ENERGY STAR qualified homes use substantially less energy for heating, cooling and water heating – delivering approximately $1,000 in annual savings. Over the average 7 to 8 years you may live in your home, this adds up to thousands of dollars saved on utility bills. Additional savings on maintenance can also be substantial.

BETTER PERFORMANCE

Properly installed energy efficient improvements deliver better protection against cold, heat, drafts, moisture, pollution and noise. An energy efficient home helps ensure consistent temperatures between and across rooms, improved indoor air quality and greater durability.

SMART INVESTMENT

To date, close to 3,500 home builders have partnered with EPA to construct more than 750,000 ENERGY STAR qualified homes. By the end of the decade, more than 2 million homes are expected to earn the ENERGY STAR label. The trend is clear. By choosing a home with the ENERGY STAR label, you can be confident that it will have an increasingly valued feature when the time comes to sell.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Energy used in our homes often comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants. Because ENERGY STAR qualified homes use less energy, they help prevent greenhouse gas emissions – an added benefit for today’s environmentally conscious consumers looking for “green” choices.

Greater energy efficiency helps us make the most of our energy resources, mitigates the impact of high energy prices, decreases the need for new power plants, lowers our reliance on energy imports and reduces the emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants at the source.

Sierra Park Property Development, LLC have worked hard to achieve the ENERGY STAR label for our homes and are proud to offer them in our community!

1. Solar World are the largest manufacturer of Solar Panels in the United States since 1975

2. Independent testing over the years proves that Solar World Panels, generate more energy than similarly rated Panels from other major brands.

3. Panels have a warranty for 25 year's.

4. Enphase M215 Micro Invertors have a warranty for 25 year's.

5. The Enphase Micro Invertor continuously monitors itself and the performance of its associated PV module. This data is communicated over the existing power line, to the Enphase Envoy. Communications gateway from the Envoy, using a standard Ethernet cable, then to a broadband router and to your computer, via the enlighten website for monitoring and analysis.

6. Free Electric for 25 years.
