Net Zero Energy Ready Homes

RONKONKOMA, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 21, 2023 / -- SUNation Energy, a Pineapple Energy company, has been selected to provide solar, battery storage, EV charging, along with adaptive energy management controls by the Baiting Hollow Development Group for their net zero energy ready homes currently under construction.

The Estates at Baiting Hollow will consist of 29 homes and be the first sustainable development in the area. While most homes prioritize insulation, LED lighting and energy efficient appliances, The Estates at Baiting Hollow, located on the North Shore of Long Island, will also incorporate electric consumption mitigation and controllability.

SUNation Energy, located in Ronkonkoma, N.Y., was chosen by BHDG to install solar panel arrays, Tesla Powerwall, SPAN IO smart load centers, and SPAN Connect EV chargers along with customizable programming to reduce dependency on the utility’s power grid and provide reliable backup power. Other energy efficiency measures include fully electrified appliances, Energy Star Certification, heat pump heating and air conditioning, and Smart Home controls as well as other technology.

“Years ago, stainless appliances and granite counters were considered upgrades in new homes,” said Scott Maskin, founder of SUNation Energy. “The technology we will be deploying in these 29 homes goes lightyears beyond just energy efficiency. These homes will generate, store, and deploy the energy they consume to maximize cost savings. Operating costs are front and center in home buyers’ minds today.”

SUNation has been serving Long Island homes and businesses since 2003 and has expanded its services from solar panel installation to include battery storage, EV chargers, and roofing along with servicing all of the above systems. The company will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this June and recently merged with Pineapple Energy.

“Building energy efficient, sustainable homes is not our solution to changing regulations, but rather a solution that will change our behavior impact on our surroundings,” said Edward Weissbach, architect of The Estates at Baiting Hollow. “The Estates at Baiting Hollow will be a community that embraces energy efficiency yet preserves traditional aesthetic sought after by those who chose the North Fork of Long Island. SUNation was chosen for their forward thinking, holistic solution, leveraging renewable energy production combined with energy storage and management.”

The first homes for The Estates are scheduled for delivery in April 2023.

“The Baiting Hollow Development Group are ‘Future Proofing’ their homes for power reliability and against utility instability as a standard while being socially and environmentally responsible,” said Maskin. “I commend them for raising the bar in new home construction.”
