We are proud to introduce Array, a 12-lot neighborhood located on 54 picturesque acres in Orange County that will be North Carolina’s first 100% net-zero energy residential community. Array is located along Orange Grove Road just 10 minutes west of downtown Carrboro and Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Today, homes can be built to very high energy efficiency and indoor air quality standards. Homeowners building these homes are doing their part for the environment. According to the US Department of Energy, buildings consume 40% of the nation’s energy and 25% of the nation’s fresh water. New buildings, if designed to the right standards, can take care of their own resource needs thereby helping the environment and reducing their carbon footprint.
Build in Array and live in the home of your dreams designed to meet the highest energy efficiency and indoor air quality standards while enjoying the beautiful natural environment. The neighborhood has an outstanding pond and will have a walking trail around the neighborhood, a community gathering place by the pond and a community garden.
The homes in Array will be certified to the National Green Building Standards and incorporate passive house and community-based standards to ensure the homes are energy efficient with the best indoor air quality. The neighborhood will have 56% open space with a portion of this land deeded for protection by Orange County.
One home is currently under construction and will be completed in November 2023 and 3-4 more lot owners plan to break ground this year.
