The goal of the owners of Green Key Village is to combine “old Florida charm” with “new green living.” It’s is a 100% net zero development, meaning all the homes produce as much energy as they consume. As in any net zero development in Florida Green Key Village uses photovoltaics “PV” to capture the power of the sun. Not only are the homes solar powered but all the community amenities are powered by PV. While the PV is the most noticeable component of energy savings in the community, efficiency was the first goal. Due to the efficiency, the homes have remarkable little PV yet still achieve net zero.
Green Key also promotes healthy living. The health of the homeowners is of highest importance for the developers. They utilize energy recovery ventilators “ERV’s” and high MERV filtration to deliver clean air. The homes incorporate healthy eco-friendly materials; their flooring, insulation, cabinets, paints and adhesives are all low-emitting.
