First ‘Energy-Free’ Community Coming to Frisco

They will break ground in Frisco Wednesday on what may be a first-of-its-kind community anywhere – a development full of homes that are energy-free and maintenance-free. By energy-free, the homebuilder, The New Modern Home, of Plano, is referring to a house that generates enough electricity through solar power to result in no electric bill. And by maintenance-free the builder is referring to his use of materials — masonry and steel instead of wood and siding — that should not require upkeep or major repairs down the line. “I am here for the long run,” said Jimmy Tanghongs, President and CEO of The New Modern Home.
