The Architect Collection
In Every Home!
Harvard communities is ONE OF JUST A HANDFULL OF BUILDERS NATIONWIDE OFFERING SOLAR ELECTRICITY, CALLED PHOTOVOLTAICS (PV), STANDARD ON
Our award-winning Architect Collection homes will generate enough solar electricity on an annual basis to supply approximately 33% of the electricity used by the home. The electricity is generated by sunlight being absorbed by roof mounted solar panels. The panels are very simple and unobtrusive – they are hardly visible and require virtually no maintenance.
With the addition of photovoltaics, our homes will be approximately 50% more energy efficient than typical new code-built homes and you will SAVE APPROXIMATELY $70 TO $100 PER MONTH ON ENERGY COSTS!*
These savings are based on today's energy costs, and with energy prices projected to increase significantly in years to come, the savings will only multiply. In addition to saving money every day, your Harvard Solar Advantage Home will qualify you to a one-time $2,000 FEDERAL TAX CREDIT!
And there is a big benefit to the environment as well. Our homes put approximately 12,000 pounds less carbon into the environment per year than a typical new home. This is the equivalent of taking a car off the road for a full year! Our homes are not only good for your pocket book, they are good for the planet. A Harvard Solar Advantage home allows you to be part of the solution, instead of being part of the problem of global warming.
When you think about it,
it just makes sense!
One of the best things about PV is that it is so simple and comes with a 25 year warranty. When your new Architect Collection Home uses less electricity than the system generates at any given time, the electricity flows backwards, and goes back into the electrical power grid. In other words, Excel buys electricity from you! It just makes sense.
