“The community will be unlike any other in the region,” said Brandon De Young, De Young Properties Executive Vice President. “Its green design and energy efficiency measures will enable homeowners to achieve extremely low energy bills, to live more comfortably, and to reduce their carbon footprint.”
In order for a home to be labeled Zero Energy, also known in the homebuilding and energy industries as Zero Net Energy, it must be exceptionally energy efficient and designed with the potential to produce as much clean energy as it consumes in a year.
Each De Young EnVision floorplan is designed as a computer energy model that allows building scientists to optimize home energy consumption and solar production.
The homes use De Young EnergySmart™ features, such as heat pump water heaters that harvest energy by extracting heat from the ambient air around the unit, a performance sealed attic, advanced framed walls, and ample formaldehyde-free insulation with airtight construction, among other energy efficient features.

The homes also include a solar power system designed with the potential to produce enough energy to bring net annual energy consumption to zero. Once an EnVision Zero Energy home is built, it is up to the energy use choices of each homeowner to achieve optimum results. This simple “production and consumption” formula is guided by sophisticated U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and industry-accepted methodology and energy simulation software to predict a home’s annual energy consumption, as well as calculate how much solar must be installed to produce an equivalent amount of clean energy. Homeowner energy consumption practices are also paramount in achieving Zero Energy status as designed by De Young’s building science team.
