We not only build energy efficient homes; we build them in energy efficient ways. Why? Because we care about our environment. This value is deeply ingrained in our culture. And if we're advising you to take advantage of sustainable products for your home, it just makes sense that we incorporate those products and ideas into our corporate home, walking our talk.
Several years ago we installed one of North Carolina's largest solar arrays, producing electricity through 273 photovoltaic solar panels on the roof of our manufacturing facility. These solar panels generate one third of the energy we use to manufacture your sustainable home, and the remaining two thirds is energy we purchase from other renewable energy producers. Over the next 10 years our goal is to continue to both reduce our demand and install additional generating capacity to eventually achieve 100% on-site generation. We are committed to manufacturing our homes with 100% renewable energy.
Our renewable energy commitment offsets approximately 208 tons of CO2 per year. Click here to see real time production from our system.
Through use of computerized saws and advanced production techniques, Deltec is building homes producing 78% less waste than a typical, site-built home. What little waste we do generate is used to help others. We pack and ship (at our expense) waste plywood to help fund building projects in Nicaragua and Haiti. Our goal is to become a zero-waste manufacturer.
Because we build homes with high quality materials in a controlled environment, our materials are not exposed to weather.
Think about this: would you ask someone to build your car piece by piece outside in the rain? That's one reason our homes last for generations, reducing the demand on the earth's natural resources.
We have a comprehensive recycling system. Not only do we recycle the easy items like paper and plastic bottles, but we have made partnerships with local industries that have allowed us to find markets for almost all of our waste. We recycle and reuse plastic wrap, plastic straps, metal, housewrap scraps, foam board, cardboard, sawdust, and wood scraps.
We purchase sustainably forested products whenever they are locally available, because replenishing these natural resources assures that future generations will have the habitats and resources they need to live sustainably.
We love our Deltec. It is a wonderful design and is VERY fuel efficient. It was green before green was cool. - Becky A., Greenville, SC
Due to the superior energy efficient design of the Deltec home, all the south facing glass and the active solar power equipment, the home is totally self sufficient. - John J., Telluride, CO
Our Deltec home has exceeded our expectations. It is comfortable inside and looks great outside. We are very happy with the energy efficiency and comfort of this design. - Marianne K., Harrisonburg, VA
Each time the gas company sends out a bill, they include a chart comparing our consumption with their average customer. Always, our consumption is just half of the average. - Ed B., Holcomb, NY
Our past electric bills ranged from $120 to 250. With our 4000 sq. ft. Deltec (around 3 times the size of our old house), our electric bill averages around $120, $130 per month. - Kim M., Magnolia, TX
We love our Deltec home. It is very energy efficient (we have not had a gas bill over $75 this year), spacious, easy to maintain, and incredibly "livable." - Daniel & Lynn W., Wildwood, PA
We have just gone through our first winter and I can't believe how tight this house is, and how it weathers the local winds which are occasionally pretty interesting. - Joseph R., Oakhurst, CA
Using regular windows, floor plan design & sub-tunnels we have such great natural lighting that we almost never need to turn on any lights in the house. - Beth H., Charleston, SC
Even on coldest days in Colorado, our house stays in the low 60s without using the furnace during the day. In the summer it never gets above 75 even if 15 degrees warmer outside. Love my house! - Suzanne M., Buena Vista, CO
Everyone else around us is crying about $500-$600 a month electrical bills and ours was $239.00 last month which is really low for Hawaii. - Keith B., Holualoa, HI
For our new home, we built to the basic Deltec standards…and our Deltec Home earned a HERS score of 34. Our home uses 66% less energy than code-built new homes. We’re very pleased with the energy efficiency. -Barbara P., Richford, VT- - Barbara P., Richford, VT
