A Guide of Home Builders
VISION House Tucson will be built in Armory Park del Sol and will also be the first home built in Pima County that will use the Net-Zero Energy Building Standard code. The goal of this City/County standard is to provide home builders with a guide that provides all the necessary information to build a net-zero home. The current estimations show VISION House Tucson will have a -17 HERS rating.
On average, homeowners at Armory Park del Sol pay only $300 per year to heat and cool their homes. Additionally, Armory Park homes use less than half the water of a standard Tucson home.
Yeah, you read that right…$300 per year…[$25 per month]…in Tucson!
