Development’s Plan: 7500 ‘Energy Neutral’ Homes in Austin

A development that promises to bring 7,500 energy-saving homes to Central Texas is beginning to take shape in northeastern Travis County.

Situated off Texas 130, about 3 miles south of Manor, construction is scheduled to start soon on the first 237 homes at Whisper Valley, developer Taurus of Texas said.

Taurus officials said the project is the first large single-family housing development, locally and nationally, that will be “energy neutral,”¬†with homes designed to produce as much energy as they consume on a net basis every year.
