Beazer Homes, CC Homes, Meritage Homes and Toll Brothers are now pre-installing SunPower Equinox solar systems in select communities, making it easier than ever for homeowners to adopt clean energy. These four deals represent nearly 1,000 solar homes across eight states.

“Builders are trying to appeal to today’s energy-conscious homebuyer who is concerned about the high cost of powering their home” said Matt Brost, vice president of New Homes sales for SunPower. “Forward-thinking builders who incorporate a renewable infrastructure from day one can reduce the cost of homeownership, provide a shield against rising energy bills and positively address climate change. That’s exactly what Beazer Homes, CC Homes, Meritage Homes and Toll Brothers are doing.”

Meritage Homes Corporation, the fifth-largest public homebuilder in the US, has expanded its solar collaboration with SunPower beyond California to certain residential communities in Colorado. The builder will soon begin including solar as a standard feature on single-family homes and townhomes across the greater Denver area.

Builder of luxury homes, Toll Brothers, Inc., has expanded its national agreement with SunPower to include solar on Toll Brothers’ homes and communities in four markets across the nation. In addition to powering all its homes built in California with SunPower, Toll Brothers will now offer the technology as an option to its home buyers in Nevada in the West, and New York and Massachusetts in the East.

Beazer Homes plans to add SunPower solar to 125 homes across Maryland and Delaware including the Chase Oaks development in Lewes, DE and all future homes built at Holly Farms in Parkville, MD. All homes in these communities will be certified by the US Department of Energy (DOE) as a DOE Zero Energy Ready HomeTM.

The company is the first national homebuilder to publicly commit to ensuring that by the end of 2025 every home they build will meet the requirements of the DOE Zero Energy Ready Home programme.

CC Homes, one of the largest private builders in South Florida, is now offering SunPower’s solar systems to all homeowners in their communities who are interested in electrifying their home and making it more energy efficient. The collaboration is expected to retrofit hundreds of households within CC Homes' communities with SunPower’s solar panels, with plans to add solar into future builds from the onset.
