Meritage Homes goes even greener with “net-zero” homes in Las Vegas
Meritage Homes Corporation, one of America’s top 10 homebuilders, announced that its new “net-zero” homes, which can produce as much energy as they consume, are now available at all of its communities in Las Vegas.
“Meritage Homes is leading a residential revolution that changes the way homes in America can and should be built,” said C.R. Herro, the company’s vice president of Environmental Affairs. “The result is a new level of energy efficiency for a home in Las Vegas.”
Herro added that this new approach to homebuilding makes homes more energy-efficient and still affordable, “an affordable net-zero home is not the home of the future anymore – the future is now.”
