America’s first solar-powered community attracts buyers with wellness tech

The first solar-powered town in the United States can teach builders about blending a healthy, sustainable lifestyle with tech to appeal to new demographics of homebuyers.

Located in Southwestern Florida, the Babcock Ranch development is expected to be the most sustainable community in the U.S. once construction is finished. To achieve this goal, the community will rely on a utility-scale solar array and an integrated water system.

Babcock Ranch will encompass 19,500 homes, more than six million square-feet of retail and office space and around 50,000 inhabitants by the time it is fully-completed.
