Just Listed: Solar-Powered Home in Arvada’s Geos Community

I have written many times about Arvada’s Geos Community, where all 25 units, like this detached single-family home at 15062 W. 59th Place, were built as all-electric homes, solar powered, designed to passive solar standards, using the latest heat pump technology, and  super-insulated with CERVs to maximize indoor air quality. The garages are wired for charging EVs. Built in 2017, the idea was to be a model for the kind of construction needed to reduce the carbon footprints of residential housing. I have done my part to publicize and promote it, but I have yet to see a metro Denver developer adopt this proven style of home construction. Indeed, the developer who purchased the adjoining land to build 130 “Geos Community” homes is not following the all-electric, geothermal, heat pump example of these original homes — and they’re selling those new homes at a higher price per square foot than these homes have sold for. Bottom-line, this home — just listed for only $725,000 — is the only true all-electric Geos home you can buy, and it’s priced to sell! Energy costs over the past 12 months averaged $19.91/month, including charging the seller’s EV.        I spell out all the sustainable features of this home in a video tour at www.JeffcoSolarHomes.com, and I’m holding it open this Saturday, April 29th, from 2 to 4pm.
