1 - BEYOND NET ZERO
When purchasing an SLC home, you are not only setting yourself up to live without energy costs, you will actually be able to generate an annual surplus of energy which some power companies may be required to buy back from you upon request at the end of every fiscal year. Standard construction homes burn through thousands of dollars a year to power themselves.
2 - WATER AND AIRFLOW MANAGEMENT
One of the most important upcoming issues facing humanity will be access for clean water. This has already been present in California, Nevada, and Texas. SLC provides grey water recycling in all homes and rain water collection when applicable. Drastically reduce water usage by up to 85%. We also install industrial strength reverse osmosis water filters and advanced air filtration systems, giving your family the purest water to drink and bathe in, and the cleanest air to breathe.
3 - FEED YOUR FAMILY WITH HOMEGROWN PRODUCE
We encourage all of our clients to incorporate our hydro-gardens and/or rooftop gardens into their building designs. You will be able to grow your own fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs, readily available without ever leaving your home. The gardens are easy to maintain and can sustain some or all of your produce, drastically reducing your grocery expenses. This could prove especially beneficial during times of unforeseen circumstance that may prevent you from making it to the grocery store.
4 - SAY GOODBYE TO GASOLINE EXPENSES
In preparing our clientele to adapt to an energy independent lifestyle, we encourage them to incorporate the use of electric cars along with solar powered car ports. Homeowners can enjoy the power of complete independence from fossil fuels and zero energy bills. Never worry about rising gas prices.
5 - REDUCED RISK OF POWER LOSS
By including a back up battery system in your SLC home, you will never experience loss of power. Whether a storm, blackout, or any unforeseen circumstance might cause your neighbors who rely on the grid temporary or permanent loss of power, you and your family can continue powering your home like normal. Never lose lights, climate control, use of appliances, and keep your car charged.
6 - REMOTE CLIMATE AND LIGHTING CONTROL
Control your thermostat and lighting with a smartphone from anywhere. Manage your climate control expenses and come home to the desired temperature you prefer.
7 - MODERN TAKES ON CLASSIC DESIGNS
Our Net Positive homes are built to resemble classic designs at first glance but are actually anything but. Open floor concepts and large windows offer a more modern layout and feel. Through strategic building and the latest renewable technology, SLC homes are designed to sustain all your energy needs while maintaining a superior comfort level for you and your family.
8 - ENERGY STAR RATED APPLIANCES AND LED LIGHTING
By taking advantage of the highest rated Energy Star appliances and making use of LED lighting as much as possible, we are able to reduce your energy needs to a fraction of standard construction homes who still use standard appliances and florescent lights.
9-RECYCLED SHIPPING CONTAINER CONSTRUCTION
By incorporating the use of recycled shipping containers SLC is able to save a substantial amount of money in the building process which we reinvest into extra technology for each home. The containers are actually made to withstand storms, making our homes sturdier than if built with standard construction. By making use of the recycled shipping containers, we are taking advantage of pre-existing materials, leaving a green footprint when we build.
10 - QUICK AND AFFORDABLE BUILDING
Another advantage to reclaimed shipping container construction is fast turn around. We are able to prefabricate much of the construction before even arriving at the site! Standard construction takes months for what we can accomplish in only a few days, making the construction process fast and efficient. As your family grows, you may desire to add on to your home. Our designs are formatted to easily be attached to each other, making such additions no problem!
11 - ADDITIONAL AMENITIES
All SLC homes can be customized according to your preferences and security needs. Pools, open terraces, design modifications and expansions are available. Technologically advanced features such as keyless smartphone locks, motion sensor lighting and climate control, Bluetooth, and electric blinds are available. If you are worried about long term security due to unforeseen social-political circumstances or natural disaster, we offer underground bunkers attached to your home which are designed for long term, off the grid, sustainability.
12 - LIFESTYLE CONSULTATION AND TUTORIALS
We realize that taking on a new style of living can seem daunting at first. For this reason, we offer full consultation before your purchase of an SLC home, so we can match what designs and additions work best for you and your family. Upon purchasing your home, an SLC representative will schedule a walk through tutorial, showing you how to monitor and maximize your energy usage, how to maintain your aquaponic garden, and answer any other questions that you may have. Our customer service technicians will be readily available with online and onsite support if needed. We will happily guide you to be a fully sustainable household.
