Alset EHome Inc. and electric carmaker Tesla announced an agreement June 21 to bring Ehomes—single-family homes featuring Tesla solar roof panels, Powerwall and electric vehicle chargers—to communities under construction in Porter and Magnolia, according to a June 21 release from Alset. Tesla Powerwall is a compact home battery that stores the solar energy generated by the roof panels, according to Tesla's website.

Each Alset Ehome will also come with a Tesla vehicle "to promote the use of electric vehicles for a sustainable lifestyle," according to the release.

To deliver its Ehome concept allowing homes to be energy independent, Tesla features will be installed in 20 new single-family homes at the Northpark Community in Porter, according to the release, with 10 more homes anticipated in June in the community.

"We are delivering what we believe will be the model housing ecosystem of the future. As more people look to make sustainable choices in their selection of homes, we are keen on making the transition for our customers the easiest it can be. This will also help accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy," said Charley MacKenzie, U.S. CEO of Alset EHome Inc., in the June 21 release.

Alset plans to acquire 70 more homes in the Houston area by the end of 2021 to debut its Ehome concept, according to the release.

In Magnolia, Alset is building a sustainable energy community at its Alset at Black Oak development, estimated to feature 650 homes at build out, according to the release. Alset at Black Oak is located on the Magnolia-The Woodlands border at Red Oak and Sweetgum roads, according to the Alset at Black Oak website.

Home builder Rausch Coleman Homes has purchased 124 lots in the community's first phase, according to the Alset at Black Oak website. Some homes will be available for rent.

In addition to Tesla vehicles and features, the sustainable energy community in Magnolia will include: an amenity center featuring organic, modular vegetable farming; a cafe; visitor residences; infant and childcare clubs; and a social events venue.

According to Alset's website, the community will also feature a solar farm and recreational facilities, such as parks and walking trails.

"Our plan is to develop over 5,000 intelligently designed Ehomes in the next 3-5 years," said Chan Heng Fei, CEO of Alset EHome International Inc., in the release. "We are excited to develop the communities of the future in close collaboration with Tesla. Tesla's products are not only technologically superior but also aesthetically pleasing. In addition to our rollout in the U.S., we plan to expand our concept on a global scale."

Alset EHome Inc. is the U.S.-based property developer and subsidiary of Alset EHome International Inc., according to the release. In addition to Alset at Black Oak, Alset is also developing Ballenger Run in Maryland.
