Lennar Corporation has been building quality homes since 1954 and has grown to become one of the largest, most successful homebuilding companies in the United States. The company began its homebuilding as F&R Builders in Miami, and later changed its name to Lennar as a combination of its two main partners, Leonard Miller and Arnold Rosen. Today, Lennar builds innovative and high-quality homes in 19 states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.
The nationwide homebuilder has prided itself on bringing innovation and new ideas to it’s properties in the way of energy efficiency, saving water, and home sustainability. “Lennar is on the forefront of designing and building homes that consume less energy, use cleaner materials, and truly reflect the way people live today,” said David Grove, president of Lennar’s Austin Division. Building homes to be green with low-impact structures, water-saving fixtures, and energy-efficient materials is fast becoming the new standard, and Lennar aims to be a leader in the push for innovative new home builds.
Lennar has since become one of the country’s leading homebuilders by offering single-family, multifamily, condominiums, and full-fledged communities to accommodate every stage of life and every lifestyle. There are 16 companies under the Lennar umbrella to offer customers a solution to every real estate need they may have, which ranges from a starter single-family home all the way up to large commercial properties.
One of these companies, SunStreet Energy Group, is the exclusive solar systems provider for Lennar’s solar home communities. The active development of a solar power provider for Lennar further demonstrates its commitment to being a part of tomorrow’s homes that provide comfort and confidence in each homebuyer. “Ultimately, the benefit is to have a compelling feature without adding tens of thousands of dollars to the price of the home,” said Emily Frager, CMO for SunStreet Energy Group. “Lennar and SunStreet install the system during the construction process and ensure it meets the same fit-and-finish requirements of the rest of the home.”
Lennar recently opened Colorado Crossing, a premier solar community in which a professional grade solar system comes standard with every home. The sustainable community based in Austin, Texas is a city first as well as one of the first in the nation to offer every resident the opportunity to offset his or her own energy bills with power generated on the roof of every home. Each home with a built-in solar system also received a HERS rating in the 30’s, making Lennar solar homes some of the most efficient homes in America. The standardization of solar panels for the community earned it the “Green Builder of the Year” award from Green Home Builder magazine for 2015.
