The next evolution in housing

eBuilt® homes

eBuilt® homes

Clayton eBuilt® homes represent the intersection of attainability, sustainability and innovation.

Built to the US Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Home™ standards, eBuilt homes are so energy efficient, homeowners can reduce their annual energy bills by up to 50%1.

eBuilt homes are also constructed so that homeowners can add a renewable solar energy system after purchase for even more savings. When combined with solar panels, eBuilt homes transform into a “net zero” home, which theoretically can offset up to 100% of its annual energy use by generating the power it consumes.

Ensuring home attainability

Ensuring home attainability

An affordable home price is just one part of homeownership costs. Surging energy rates can create financial hardships for homeowners and act as a “hidden mortgage,” where the cost of utilities – especially in an energy inefficient home – can be as much or more than the cost of the home itself.

Built to the US Department of Energy’s high-performing efficiency standards, eBuilt® homes can help homeowners keep more of their money, simply because the home they live in is more energy efficient.
