Great Britain’s International Business Times says Jerseyville, Illinois, in the southern part of the state near St. Louis, Missouri, is the site for 32 new modular single-family green homes. Each 1,424 square foot three bedroom home in the Lexington Farms development has the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum designation. The homes have solar roof panels, Energy Star appliances, low-flow water fixtures, R-21 wall and R-49 attic insulation, energy efficient light fixtures and irrigation systems, and vertical axis wind turbines, all designed for net zero energy usage. In addition, the modular homes are being built for families with incomes under $41,000 a year who are buying the homes with payments of $590 a month. The program is funded by the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) through the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA), with Low-Income Housing Tax Credits for financing. The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (IDCEC) is also providing support.
