Texas’s first zero-energy capable housing community, Whisper Valley, is in the first phase of its plan to build over 7,000 new, eco-friendly homes in the East Austin, Texas area. These homes will be equipped with geothermal energy, solar photovoltaic power, high-efficiency appliances, and Nest Smart Home technology. Each home will produce an average of 7,000 killowatt hours all from zero energy capable systems.
The Whisper Valley project was initiated to bring sustainability and affordability together for an entire community. To achieve this, the building developers searched for EcoSmart Solution-approved reliable, high-quality solar installers that could satisfy the large scope of the project. Whisper Valley selected Longhorn Solar as one of three trusted solar installers to provide solar installations.
“Everyone at Longhorn Solar is ecstatic to be chosen to work with Whisper Valley. The development itself is innovative and pioneering a new, more sustainable future for residential housing communities. We are thrilled to install solar panels at Whisper Valley and bring solar power to more people.” says Louis Petrik, Longhorn Solar CEO.
Longhorn Solar earned the endorsement by Whisper Valley because of its dedication to quality and service. This new partnership allows Longhorn Solar to provide expert work on a large scale to help the project meet its affordability goals.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
