D.R. Horton is teaming up with the Sacramento Municipal Utilities District to make two of its area communities energy efficient. The Sacramento Business Journal reports:

The Sacramento Municipal Utility District and national home builder D.R. Horton Inc. have formed a partnership to build an energy-efficient subdivision with all-electric power.

Two groups of houses in a North Natomas neighborhood will be built to zero-carbon ratings by Arlington, Texas-based D.R. Horton (NYSE: DHI), with financial support from SMUD to install efficient electric heating, water heating and cooking appliances. ...

... In D.R. Horton's and SMUD's project, some 104 all-electric houses will be built in two neighborhoods now being developed by Horton: “Juniper,” which is 66 homes, and “Independence,” which is 38 homes. They will all have rooftop solar power systems. The subdivisions could be built out by next year.
