Wilshire Homes Partners with SolarCity
Wilshire Homes is expanding its green building practices by partnering with SolarCity (NASDAQ: SCTY), a leading provider of clean energy, to offer solar panels for its range of LEED-certified homes in downtown Boerne's Woodside Village, giving homebuyers an easy way to make the switch to clean, renewable energy for their homes and help them save money on their electric bills.
The builder is celebrating the opening of its Woodside Village model home at 199 Autumn Ridge in traditional Texas manner, with a barbecue 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28.
Boerne Mayor Mike Shultz will speak at the event, as will Pam Losefsky with the U.S. Green Building Council, which oversees the LEED for Homes certification program. Members of the Boerne Chamber of Commerce also will be on hand for a ribbon-cutting. In addition to enjoying barbecue by Fritze's, event-goers can register to win an iPad Mini. The public is invited.
“As the only production builder in the San Antonio area to follow LEED-certified mandates, our collaboration with SolarCity dovetails nicely with our goal to build a home that leaves a minimal footprint on the environment,” said Ken
