The Northwoods neighborhood is unique and sets itself apart from the other Holland Homes communities. Not only does it offer the well designed, high quality homes that Holland Homes are known for, but the community is also a completely future-focused, environmentally conscious, smart neighborhood. An abundance of leading edge technology is present in every home to ensure the neighborhood is more energy-efficient than the standard Alabama homes built today.
Partnering with the well-versed, Alabama Power, both companies are combining their experience to bring the best appliances and products for an energy smart life. They are focused on researching and providing products that work for you. The homes have a higher energy standard than what’s required by code and feature an array features such as smart outlets, a smart thermostat and an electric car charger, to name a few.
As this is the first smart neighborhoods in the area, it serves as both a research tool and as a step toward a more sustainable future - demonstrating that luxury does not need to be compromised when committing to reduce your carbon footprint. Families have the opportunity to take control of their energy use, and can log in to the usage report at any point in time to review their data and see where most energy is being used. Those who choose to live in Northwoods live better today, while enabling a community’s energy system to generate the information needed to create more efficient products and services for tomorrow.
