Minnesota Green Home Builder Guarantees No Net Energy Bills on Fall Parade of HomesSM Model #299

Share Article

Amaris Homes, LLC announces a first ever of its kind Green Energy Guarantee in Minnesota offering the home buyer of its Fall Parade model home #299 a guarantee of no net energy bills for the first ten years to promote Net Zero Ready Homes.

Today, Amaris Homes, LLC (dba Amaris Custom Homes) announces a first of its kind Green Energy Guarantee in Minnesota that will, subject to certain terms and conditions, guarantee no net energy bills (gas, electric and water) for the first ten years to the first non-contingent buyer of its Builders Association of Twin Cities (BATC) Fall Parade of Homes model home located in Afton, Minnesota.

Amaris Homes, LLC is the foremost custom, high performance green builder in the Minneapolis St. Paul Metropolitan Market and has built and certified more custom green homes than any other custom home builder in Minnesota. Amaris Homes already exceeds even the new residential building code (IRC 2012), that took effect in January 2015 by approximately 35-40%. Amaris Homes goes beyond the code by committing our expertise and continued research to building better homes.

The Founder and Chief Manager, Raymond Pruban, says “We’ve been building high performance homes for ten years figuring out how to do all of this.” “The technology is available, it’s affordable, rebates and tax credits make it financially viable and we think the market is ready,” says Pruban

Pruban lives in his other St. Paul model home and he took the final step of adding a 12.3 kilowatt solar system in December 2014. The home now boasts no net energy bills on an annual basis and that even includes charging his Chevy Volt. “That doesn’t get old.” Pruban says.

To make their point, Amaris is offering to install a 12.1 kilowatt solar system with a market value of approximately $40,000 at no additional cost to the buyer of the Afton model home, if purchased during the Fall 2015 Parade of Homes. “We are hoping to shake up the building industry and educate buyers to understand what is accessible to all and we are out here to help buyers make it happen”, says Pruban.

While the guarantee of no net energy bills for ten years is very attractive, this Amaris Parade home has other great new ideas incorporated in it. The Amaris model home comes with 986 square foot “chose your own build out” bonus space. Amaris came up with the idea of flexible unfinished square footage recognizing the ever-changing needs of modern families. The $899,000 price tag includes an allowance to finish the “chose your own build out” bonus space. There are three pre-designed options by Amaris or you can create your own plan for the space to accommodate your needs and desires. Although not 100% built to ADA standards, the home offers buyers the ability to stay in the home during the later years of their life and offers a solution to families who may need to accommodate persons in a wheel chair.

The model home is set on a breath taking beautiful quiet 5 acre lot which allows horses. The home can be configured up to 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms at 4,217 square feet. This include 2,865 square feet of main living space with master suite.

With the innovative approach Amaris Homes incorporates into its homes, Amaris built homes offer a very healthy and comfortable living environment that will extend the life of your most important investment.

The program and the subsequent guarantee is subject to terms and conditions not outlined within this release.

The Builders Association of the Twin Cities Fall Parade runs from September 12th through October 4th Thursday through Sunday, 12:00PM to 6:00PM.
