People looking to build their own homes are starting to get energy-wise. That is, they’re starting to expect alternative energy options, like solar panels and hot water systems, to be available with their homes. In fact, Colorado is looking to pass a bill which would make these options mandatory for any home builder to offer, as well as allow the home owner to roll the cost of installation into their mortgage, rather than pay upfront. New Jersey already requires developments of 25 homes or larger to offer solar panels to home buyers, and in 2010 the same will be effected in California for developments of more than 50 homes. Along with the federal tax credits for installing alternative energy systems, home energy installations are becoming an environmental and economical choice.
