MARYSVILLE, Tenn. — Clayton Homes, the nation’s largest builder of manufactured and modular housing, has unveiled its first net-zero electricity home.
Features available to customers include Energy Star appliances, LED lights, Lux windows with argon, a 22-21-50 insulation package and a smart thermostat. Additional options include solar shingles and low-VOC paint.
The net-zero electricity home costs just under $230,000 before the cost of land and solar panels. With all of the upgrades, the home produces enough energy to power itself.
Fiberon has started construction on a 500,000-s.f. production plant in Columbia, Tenn., that will create more than 300 jobs. The plant will manufacture polyethylene decking and composite cladding. There will also be an onsite recycling facility that will convert baled plastic waste into pellets used in Fiberon products.
