At Noyes Development, we build value into every home with our Earth Advantage Platinum certification. In addition to this, nearly all of our homes are certified Zero Energy Ready by Earth Advantage!
Zero Energy Ready homes, also referred to as Net Zero Ready, are designed to be energy efficient, durable, and extremely comfortable. These homes are intended to last 100 years or more and are redefining what an efficient luxury home can be.
While we place a high premium on energy efficiency, it’s never at the cost of a durable, well-built, and long-lasting home. In fact, the efforts we make to ensure efficiency contribute to durability in a way not experienced in typical homes. We know you’ll be satisfied with your Zero Energy Ready home for years to come.
Zero Energy Ready homes are designed to use very little energy while offering an incredibly comfortable environment. These homes are planned, inspected, and tested to ensure that solar panels can be installed on the roof to provide enough energy for the home over the course of each year.
Benefits of Zero Energy Ready homes are…
Once a solar PV system is installed, your home will be ready to produce as much energy as it consumes over the course of the year. Solar installed on many Noyes homes can even provide enough power to charge an electric car for thousands of miles of driving in addition to powering the home.
This results in a net zero home that costs less to power. You’ll reduce your reliance on fossil fuels and save money in the process.
Extremely comfortable and energy-efficient due to modern features and airtight construction.
Ability to reduce annual metered energy use to zero with optional renewable energy systems.
Resilient and durable, protecting your family from extreme weather events and power outages when paired with a battery.
Drastically reduces your carbon footprint, minimizing the impact your home has on climate change.
“Noyes Development consistently sets the bar higher and higher for energy-efficient and sustainable construction practices in the Pacific Northwest. The list of high-performance features that are included in every Noyes house is extensive. These features add up to homes that are 40% more energy efficient than the stringent Oregon building code requires.” - Peter Brown, Director of Building Certifications for Earth Advantage Institute
