HereÕ how homebuilders are standardizing solar panels

Lennar helps pave the way

Lennar (LEN) and other companies have recently been trying to make it easier and cheaper for homeowners to generate electricity from the sun, chipping away at the utilities’ monopolies. As a result, the number of residential solar installations has climbed, aided by their declining cost and government incentives. Per the Wall Street Journal:  

Such systems are less expensive to install during a house’s construction than afterward, while some builders offer the cheaper option to lease a system rather than buy one.

“We aren’t offering homes with solar as an option—it’s a standard feature” in certain communities, said David Kaiserman, president of Lennar Ventures, which oversees the builder’s solar project.
