Nonprofit organization Tenants to Homeowners has completed its first affordable home that utilizes solar power. The two-bedroom, 925-square-foot home at 1443 Prairie Avenue is available for purchase now. The home was built on a lot that allows the nonprofit to take advantage of Lawrence’s density bonus. This rule allows two affordable homes on one lot as long as each house’s lot is at least 3,000 square feet.
Tenants to Homeowners looked to Good Energy Solutions to install the solar panels for this project. We supplied the Lawrence nonprofit with 10 SunPower 335 Watt panels.
Just like other Tenants to Homeowners homes, this solar-powered house can be purchased at an affordable price to a qualifying owner. The house will remain in a permanently affordable community land trust for future homeowners.
Here are a few images that show off the outside of the home and the solar panel installation on the roof:
