Polo Run: If You Could Power Your Whole House with the Sun, Would You?

What better place to make the most of solar energy than right here in Florida? Polo Run on Lakewood Ranch is being developed as gated community featuring 500 single-family residences powered by rooftop solar panel installations from SunStreet, a solar technology company who owns the panels and is providing free maintenance and troubleshooting for the term of the lease (terms vary).

When you purchase a home in Polo Run, the electricity you use in the daytime will be generated by the rooftop panels; energy that is not utilized is transferred back to the grid and credited to the household. At night, you will use conventional energy from the grid, which will include the unused energy credits from the daytime. Since Florida Power and Light charges higher rates for the electricity used during the daytime, living in Polo Run will help you save by reducing your monthly bills. It is estimated that the panels will offset an estimated 50 to 60 percent of each home’s energy needs.

Buyers who close on a Polo Run property will have a 20-year warranty on their solar panels in addition to the new construction warranty. When all the amenities are completed, Polo Run residents will enjoy a swimming pool, clubhouse, exercise room, playground, tennis court, and basketball. This neighborhood is just a couple of miles away from a Lakewood Ranch shopping plaza anchored by a Publix supermarket, and driving to the beach takes about 30 minutes. It’s located on the north side of SR70 about six miles east of I-75.
