A SheaXero home is designed to produce as much electricity as it consumes over the course of a year, in some instances performing as a “net zero electric" home. Every SheaXero home includes a powerful solar generation system and energy saving features that combine to virtually eliminate average electricity costs over the course of each year. While you’ll still be responsible to connection charges or other miscellaneous fees from your utility company, you’ll enjoy the savings you get when your SolarCity system generates electricity that can dramatically offset your electric usage. To get the most savings, it’s still important to conserve electricity, so make it a point to be energy-wise every day in your SheaXero home.
SheaXero is a standard feature at Monarch Dunes, Rice Ranch, The Vineyards and Rio Vista and is available as an option at Encanterra, Vistancia, Wickenburg Ranch, Ardiente, The Polo Club, Lake Frederick, Orlando, and Ocala Preserve.
