Extra benefits of going solar during your home’s construction
Adding solar to a Peloquin home provides an opportunity for homeowners to push their net energy usage down to zero. While the ability to reach net zero depends on a specific home’s roof size and orientation and isn’t possible in every situation, Peloquin is leading the charge in making zero energy homes attainable for a wider audience than ever before. By adding an 8.7 kilowatt solar system to the average Peloquin Home a homeowner can reach net zero energy usage!
