IS THIS WHAT YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR? One-level home offers large rooms, good interior daylight and a lovely in-town setting.

THE PARTIAL SOLAR ARRAY greatly reduces energy purchased to run this home. Other than a nominal monthly fee from the power company, there are several months in  summer when this home uses none of the grid's power and the seller pays for zero power consumption. Through the remainder of the year the power bill is lower based on lower power consumption purchased due to the portion of energy which is created on site at this home. Amazing!
