KirE Builders partners with SolarCity

Poway-based KirE Builders Inc. and SolarCity (Nasdaq: SCTY) have partnered to offer solar power for all homes in its Black Canyon Estates community and its forthcoming Vista Sereno Estates, opening summer 2014.

The arrangement between SolarCity and KirE Builder makes it possible for homebuyers to pay less for solar electricity than they pay for utility bills.

Solar will come standard on Black Canyon Estates homes in Ramona and as an option in Vista Sereno Estates in Lemon Grove.

Black Canyon is a 25 single-family homes community on two acres each and will have standard 3 kilowatts with options to upgrade to 4.5 or 6.0 kilowatts. The installations are custom designed by SolarCity to maximize savings and efficiency.

Other standard features in these homes, which will start in the $500,000s, include tankless water heaters, low-E windows, and water-saving plumbing fixtures.

Amenities at Vista Sereno, a collection of eight single-family homes that start in the $400,000s, will also include tankless water heaters and energy-efficient clothes dryers.

“At KirE Builders, we have a twist on the American dream—to own a home with clean, affordable solar power,” said Josh Santa, president of KirE Builders. “We are delighted to be enhancing our beautiful new homes with an environmentally friendly feature that not only cuts carbon but saves our homeowners money.”
