What is a Zero-Energy Capable Home?

Thanks to advanced technology and innovative products, it is now possible for homes to be energy self-sufficient. By reducing consumption using high-efficiency geothermal heat pumps and producing power using photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, a home can become zero-energy capable. And EcoSmart innovations make it all possible.

Geothermal Energy

Geothermal Energy

The groundbreaking homes at Whisper Valley all utilize a unique thermal energy supply system (TESS) pre-installed at the start of development. This remarkable technology uses the thermal properties of the earth beneath our feet to heat and cool each home much more efficiently that traditional systems, reducing consumption by 65%.

A high-efficiency BOSCH geothermal heat pump provides heating, cooling and hot water. And it doesn’t require an outdoor condensing unit exposed to the elements year-round that generates unwanted noise. Just another reason we named our community Whisper Valley.

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power

Imagine harnessing the world’s most powerful source of energy: our sun. Using photovoltaic solar panels cells, we're able to convert sunlight into electricity. And residents are able to tap into it without bearing the full cost. This innovative system helps us make zero-capable ready homes available in Whisper Valley.
