Solar powered homes selling quickly

Need proof that there's more public support than ever for environmentally friendly homes? Clarum Homes is building a community of 47 zero-energy homes in Menlo Park, California. They began selling these homes this summer, and have already sold 44 of the 47!

As a community, Menlo Park's real estate market is trending downward, but is still considered fairly good, especially when compared with many other parts of the country. So 44 out of 47 isn't quite the astonishing feat it would be in today's Phoenix market; it's still impressive nonetheless. Kudos to Clarum Homes, and Kudos to those who bought the homes.
