ComEd volunteers help build green homes in Habitat for Humanity development
GLEN ELLYN – Planners of one development near Glen Ellyn are striving to put more energy into constructing some new homes than will be spent running them.
Representatives of DuPage Habitat for Humanity have been working on their Prairie Green project for several months. Sarah Brachle Wagner, executive director of the group, said homes for 12 families will eventually be built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards. The development is on the west side of Illinois Route 53 just north of Butterfield Road in unincorporated DuPage County near Glen Ellyn.
“Prairie Green will consist of 12 sustainable homes that are developed by DuPage Habitat for Humanity and sold to qualified buyers,” Wagner said. “There will be a 0 percent interest rate on the mortgage. … And the homes are designed to be energy efficient, so this will also save the homeowners money.”
