Raising the Bar on Energy Efficiency
Intelligently Energizing Our Community and Our Homes
At Sterling Ranch, we are raising the bar on what it means to be energy efficient. When it comes to energizing our community and our homes, we are working toward reducing our carbon footprint with the goal to have as little negative impact on our planet as possible — something our residents can be proud of day and night. Using renewable energy sources such as solar and wind whenever possible, we are taking great strides toward pulling less from the grid.
Because of our efforts, our residents enjoy:
Improved air quality inside and outside their homes | higher home resale values | lower electric bills | feeling great about helping preserve our precious resources | Real-time energy feedback with STEWARD, smart-home-automation system
Bright days ahead
Here’s what we are doing on a daily basis to help with energy sustainability.
On a community level:
- Our intelligent streetlights lead the way by automatically reducing to 50% at 10 p.m. and completely turning off at dawn.
- Our compliance with the International Dark Sky Initiative significantly reduces energy usage and light pollution at night.
- We tap into local wind turbines as part of our community energy sources.
When it comes to our homes:
- Every home at Sterling Ranch is Energy Star® compliant.
- We provide state-of-the-art technology to monitor utility usage, giving residents real-time data that helps them consciously conserve power.
- Every home comes prepared to accept solar.
- Every garage is wired for an electric vehicle charging station.
- As part of the Xcel Energy portfolio, wind power is available for our residents to purchase.
We’re taking a revolutionary approach to effective energy management at Sterling Ranch by protecting and preserving this critical resource every day, and our residents are proud to join our effort. Together, we are making a difference that will be felt for lifetimes to come.
“We want Sterling Ranch to reduce its carbon footprint without necessarily impacting the cost of housing or negatively impacting our residents. . . . We are fortunate to live in a state where we have a lot of strong wind and solar resources to use in order to accomplish this goal.”
