Good morning Jeff Dowler, CRS - those homes at Kensington at the Square are the first I have heard of that offer solar.

Looks like a new housing option at Kensington at the Square.  The solar option is pretty cool too. Nice convenient location is always a bonus.

Hi Wayne Martin 

I think they are pretty well priced, relatively speaking, given what's near by. Sort of a mini-urban setting!

Hi Grant Schneider 

Solar is not common in new builds but becoming more so. The La Costa Collection townhomes were built a few years ago and are all solar.

And there is a new requirement going into effect in 2020  - new single family homes (with some exceptions, such as too small a roof or homes in the shade) and multi-family buildings up to 3 stories must come with enough solar panels to offset electricity usage.
