"Still A Great Deal"
"Still a great deal," is the email received from a happy owner of a NEB Home (No Energy Bill Home). TAPA Homes designs and builds custom homes featuring the NEB model. The home owners send a copy of their electric bill every month to let TAPA Homes know that the house is performing as advertised. It goes without saying that everyone would like to have a $3.44 electric bill. The average electric bill of this NEB Home for the past 22 months has been $12.89.Jim and his wife are owners of a 1,782 square foot NEB Home that sits on 1.5 acres east of Route 1 in Milford. The three bedroom, two bathroom, two car garage, home is in the only subdivision of it's kind in DE; a NEB Home subdivision. They purchased the NEB home at the end of 2011. The electric usage for the billing cycle was -41 kilowatt hours (kwhrs). Imagine that your electric meter is running backwards more than it is running forwards. The 22 month average electric usage has been 43.09/kwhrs. It is hard to put into perspective other than to say that the typical 1,500 square foot home consumes 1,200 kwhrs/month. That means that the NEB Home is 27 times more electricity efficient than a typical home.
