Wells, ME (PRWEB) June 07, 2012
All home buyers interested in saying good-bye to oil and electric bills are invited to a ribbon-cutting event for the first ever NETZERO energy efficient community in Wells, ME. Brackett Estates, located just one mile from Old Marsh Golf Club, will open its state-of-the-art model home on June 22 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Keiser Industries of Oxford, ME, Futuro, Inc. of Portsmouth, NH, and Kaplan Thompson Architects of Portland, ME have partnered to design and build the first of 26 zero-energy homes for this community. The homes will feature exceptional energy efficiency, including super-insulated construction, photovoltaic solar panels, solar hot water, triple-glazed windows, low-flow showerheads and more.
Net-zero, or zero-energy, means exactly that – zero cost to the home owner for the consumption or use of electricity because of the home’s design. Because they are modular, net-zero homes can be constructed quickly in Keiser’s state of the art, climate-controlled facility, and will give owners immediate savings in their energy bills. The efficiency is accomplished using R-40 wall insulation, R-60 ceilings, and triple glaze windows.
The first completed home is a two-story Cape-style featuring 1,750 square feet of living space with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. A variety of configurations and floor plans are available, and the community is close to downtown shopping and recreation.
“All of these attributes - combined with a beautiful wooded setting and 35 acres of pristine open space - create a truly unique and serene experience for vacationers and year-round residents alike,” says Abigail Douris of AD Real Estate Group, the firm marketing these state-of-the-art homes developed by Keiser Industries.
