Coastal Custom Homes is one of the first builders in the Comox Valley to include solar panels on one of their homes for sale. This company is ahead of the curve by providing innovative, creative, cost-effective solutions, incorporating leading-edge technologies according to the BC Energy Step Code. The solar panels are installed on the roof of this home and are designed to take advantage of the sun passing overhead. This energy system will provide ongoing cost savings throughout the life of this home as it will be generating its own electricity. Also, research has shown that a professional solar panel installation will increase the value of the home by 4-5%.
