Solar panels part of home packages at Calif. development
Each house features 1.5-5 kilowatt systems to enhance curb appeal
The Executive Series subdivision of JMC Homes in Lincoln, Calif., includes a novel feature: rooftop solar panels. Each house comes with at least a 1.5-kilowatt solar energy system, but home buyers can upgrade up to as much as 5 kilowatts. The panels were placed on the back of the roofs to maintain the curb appeal of houses.
