August 18, 2010 – We are excited to announce that representatives from LifeStyle Homes, in Melbourne, will be traveling to Phoenix, AZ, next month to join our building science friends from the Florida Solar Energy Center in presenting the LifeStyle SunSmart(SM) success story to attendees at the Excellence in Building Conference & Expo sponsored by the Energy & Environmental Building Alliance. That is our major Brevard LifeStyle Solar-Powered News for today!

And, major news it is. This conference will be bringing together the leaders in forward-thinking home building from across North America in an effort to learn about new research developments in building science and share best practices for putting those ideas into practice. The best practices part is where LifeStyle Homes will make our contribution. Relying on the cutting-edge research supplied to us by FSEC, LifeStyle Homes has been able to sustain itself during the recent housing downturn and emerge with flying colors into the resurgence of housing demand. We might not have survived had it not been for their help. Ours is not a story of science, but rather a story about to put scientific breakthroughs  to good use building better homes for our customers and fueling our nation’s economic recovery.  It’s all very good!

We are so proud of our long and productive association with the Florida Solar Energy Center in nearby Cocoa. FSEC is a research institute of the University of Central Florida and is a major supplier of research support to the U.S. Department of Energy in its efforts to make homes more energy efficient and environmentally supportive.  FSEC has written two important research papers documenting its experience with LifeStyle Homes.  You can find the first one concerning our HERS 60 SunSmart(SM) Energy Initiative here, and the second on our remarkable Solar-Powered Net Zero Energy SunSmartPV homes here.

So, we hope you will stay tuned for more exciting Brevard LifeStyle Solar-Powered News as we prepare for our presentation in Phoenix. Even better; help us get ready by becoming a member in our family of happy homeowners. You see, all of this is not about us so much as it is about us focusing on you!
