Lennar home in Sea Aire.

In the South Carolina low country, Lennar is going solar. The Post and Courier reports:

A new community of solar-powered houses is rising on James Island.

Sea Aire, a product of Miami-based builder Lennar Corp., will feature 24 homes off Folly Road. Prices start in the $300,000s.

Among the development's other environmental features are preserved grand oak trees and native plantings among community gardens, compost bins, storm water filtration systems and pervious grass pavers.

The builder will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony 1 p.m. Tuesday for its recently completed model home at 1410 Pearl Channel Loop. It's at the end of Dick Singleton Road off Secessionville Road.
