Schneider Electric, a manufacturer of energy management and automation, has announced a partnership with KB Home, one of the largest and most recognized homebuilders in the United States.
Schneider Electric will provide grid-to-plug innovation in KB Home’s new Sundance at Park Circle community in Valley Center, California. These homes will incorporate the Square D Energy Center and connected Wiring Devices, which will offer greater levels of control, energy efficiency and resiliency for new homebuyers.
KB Home has long recognized the benefits of building energy efficient homes and a homebuilder that has been committed to make every home it builds ENERGY STAR certified, which can deliver energy savings that lowers the cost of homeownership and be better for the planet.
As a company that does emphasize ecological friendliness, Schneider Electric shares those ideals to develop solutions focused on efficiency to meet the challenges facing homeowners, including rising energy costs, frequent power disruptions and an increasing need for residential energy. By partnering on homes in the Park Circle community, homeowners will benefit from solutions designed to address these specific issues.
“Higher utility costs and intermittent power shut offs have become the reality for many California residents, significantly impacting their quality of life and that of their families,” says Richard Korthauer, vice president, home & distribution, Schneider Electric.
“From working and schooling from home to just managing their day-to-day activities, the demands for residential energy has never been higher. Together, we are helping KB Home meet this customer need with new innovations designed for today’s energy challenges, delivering safe, reliable and resilient power for homeowners.”
