The New Modern Home is building a community of solar-powered homes in Frisco that the company claims would result in $0 electric bills.
The company broke ground on the first homes Wednesday northwest of Main Street and Preston Road.
“[Frisco is] growing so rapidly, and they’ve been such innovators in change and progression around Dallas and even the country,” said Olivia Barnes, sales consultant for The New Modern Home.
Barnes said four solar panel packages are offered based on the size of the home and the number of occupants. The homes are also built with all masonry products, including brick, foam insulation and metal ducting, she said.
Home prices range from about $500,000-$900,000. Most of the 22 lots in the community are still available for purchase.
