Say Hello to Energy Savings

The highest-performing, most energy-efficient home Clayton has ever built.

Clayton is committed to building affordable homes - both in price and operating costs. Home energy expenses continue to rise, and in 2021, the average homeowner paid nearly 15% more for electricity versus the year before - that’s double the rate of inflation. This poses a true financial burden for families across the country, so we decided to do something about it: enter eBuilt Homes.

What is an eBuilt Home?

An eBuilt home is built to the US Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Home off-site home standards. High-performing and energy efficient, it is built ready to add a ground-based renewable solar energy system if homeowners choose to do so after purchase.
