KB Home, Los Angeles, (KBH), will provide solar power systems for new homes as a standard feature in 10 Southern California communities. The company has already provided solar power systems as an option for its homebuyers in select communities in California and Colorado for a number of years, but this is the first time it will build entire communities featuring solar power systems for every home. KB Home has already begun offering the solar power systems at its Newbury at the Enclave community in Eastvale, Manzanita at Paseo del Sol community in Temecula and Monterey at Otay Ranch community in Chula Vista. Five additional Southern California communities featuring solar power systems for every home will open over the next sixty days, and two more are expected to open in the fall of 2011. SunPower Corp., San Jose, will provide the solar technology. Details
