We are committed to extending these values into the community with a tradition of giving back to our veterans through our Semper Cares initiative.

Semper Solaris is a veteran-owned and operated Solar Power company built on core military values, including selfless service and personal courage. We are committed to extending these values into the community with a tradition of giving back to our veterans through our Semper Cares initiative.

We are proud to announce the new Semper Cares recipient, Marine Corps Veteran, David Smith, and award him with a free solar power system installed at no cost by Semper Solaris. We are moved by David’s story, his bravery, ambition, and determination to overcome adversity.

David served in Afganistan where he sustained injuries in June of 2010 when the military vehicle he was walking beside hit an IED. Suffering damage to his right leg, internal bleeding, and a severe traumatic brain injury, he sustained speech and mobility impairments and faced a hard road to recovery.

He tackled his rehabilitation with courage and determination, relearning how to walk while facing speech pattern difficulties caused by his brain trauma. He was determined to overcome his limitations and pursue his education despite the many challenges that lay ahead.

With first-hand knowledge and unique insight from his own life experience, he centered his thesis on traumatic brain injuries. David graduated from the University of North Texas and furthering his research; brought a credible voice to his field by publishing several papers on potential modalities for the future study of traumatic brain injuries.

The Semper Cares Initiative Is born out of a deep connection to and respect for our nation’s military. We want to honor the men and women who, like David Smith, have sacrificed for our freedom. The purpose of Semper Cares Initiative is to help deserving veterans and their families make significant home improvements and offer free solar power installations.

We are giving back to veterans by providing relief from high energy costs and helping them and their families achieve energy independence. With the support of the community, national charities, and our generous suppliers Owens Corning, LG, SolarWorld, SolarEdge and others, we have received tens of thousands of dollars for our missions and a commitment to the support of future projects.

This generosity has made the vision of Semper Solaris’ founders Kelly Shawhan and John Almond a reality for many deserving veterans and their families. With a focus on military/humanitarian traditions, it is our hope that this effort to help veterans will continue to grow for many years to come.

We are privileged to honor David Smith’s service by awarding him with the solar power system from LG and Solaredge. We would love to hear from the community in searching out our deserving heroes.

Perhaps you know of a veteran who could benefit from receiving the gift of going solar. Please check out our past missions, and join us by nominating a brave warrior for our next mission. Let Semper Solaris tell their story and make a difference in their lives.

energy efficient custom homes

Amaris Homes’ award-winning model home is in Afton, Minnesota, and is a custom spec four-bedroom, 3 ½-bathroom home.

We are extremely proud to be recognized once again for our work to build custom homes with green building practices.

Amaris Homes, a leader in the affordable energy home industry, received Grand Winner recognition in the “Custom Homes on Spec” category from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Housing Innovation Awards. This is the second time they have received this custom home design award in the last four years. In 2017, Amaris Homes tied for first place; this year the company was the only one named Grand Winner.

The company’s award-winning model home is in Afton, Minnesota, and is a custom spec four-bedroom, 3 ½-bathroom home with a high-performance insulation system, energy efficient appliances and a high-efficiency comfort system, among other green features.

Amaris Homes has more certified custom-built green homes than any other builder in the state of Minnesota. While most other states have hundreds or even thousands of certified homes with the Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Homes Program, Minnesota only has 34. The Department of Energy’s Housing Innovation Award winners represent the top 1% of U.S. builders that meet the rigorous specifications for the energy efficient custom homes program.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized once again for our work to build custom homes with green building practices,” said Raymond Pruban, Amaris Homes founder and chief manager. “These awards provide further reassurance of the quality of our green homes, not just in build and appearance, but what they can do for the environment.”

Energy efficient custom homes from Amaris Homes cut costs for homeowners by saving on energy bills while also doing so in a way that contributes to a sustainable future.

“Our goal is to continue to build homes with energy and water efficiency,” Pruban added. “We will continue to grow the number of green homes we produce in 2021.”

This Amaris Homes home incorporates efficient design principles that are calculated to save a homeowner $3,350 annually compared to the average new home.

As a healthy home builder, Amaris Homes has committed that every home it creates will meet the Zero Energy Home Program requirements.

Amaris Homes has won each time they have entered the Housing Innovation Awards. They also recently won the Reggie Award in 2019, which is an award granted for homes with high aesthetic appeal, along with other renowned custom home design awards.

Suntuity Announces Net Zero Home Pilot Project in Central New Jersey

This is the first of many Net Zero Homes we will build to bring homeowners and business owners into a sustainable, affordable, ideally carbon-free future that will positively affect generations to come. -Dan Javan, Suntuity CEO & President

Holmdel, New Jersey-based contractors Suntuity Solar (https://suntuitysolar.com) and Suntuity Home (https://suntuityhome.com) are pleased to announce the construction of a one-of-a-kind LEED Platinum Certified home, the first of many planned under Suntuity Home’s Net Zero brand. The 100% solar-powered structure will become the first self-sustaining residential net zero energy project in central New Jersey to be built with cost-effective and environmentally-friendly BuildBlock ICF (Insulating Concrete Forms).

Once construction is complete, the ENERGY STAR® rated home will host 90 rooftop DualSun SPRING® solar modules on an Englert standing seam metal roof, 98% energy efficient LED lighting, a 93 kilowatt solar thermal heating system, and 8 Tesla™ Powerwall batteries for power storage. Additionally, an 1,800-square-foot rain catchment system will be installed on the rooftop to save and recycle up to 40,000 gallons of water per year.

A geothermal heating system and hybrid heat pumps will be used for secondary and tertiary heating supplements, and a 29,000-gallon infinity edge pool will serve as an additional storage location for hot water during colder months. The insulated driveway of the home, also to be built with ICF, will include an ice melt system to battle icy weather conditions. Additional premier brands utilized for this project include a CertainTeed mortarless STONEfacade™ to avoid moisture related issues, a Warmboard® radiant heating system, 3-pane, low emissivity (Low-E) PlyGem windows and a 36-foot span of hinge-less Panoramic Doors made with PVC and aluminum for improved thermal conditions and structural strength.

“We are pleased to announce this unique pilot project,” said Suntuity President and CEO, Dan Javan. “It is the first of many Net Zero Homes we will build to bring homeowners and business owners into a sustainable, affordable, ideally carbon-free future that will positively affect generations to come. We have done our best to work with a skilled team of professionals to bring green structures like this to market.”

The home will produce enough clean air to offset the pollution from over 63 million miles driven by the average vehicle. While it has a wealth of carbon-reducing benefits, there are also significant savings that the homeowner will experience over time – about $12,000 in annual utility savings, or an estimated ~$300,000 over 25 years. For additional savings, the standing seam metal roof with low-gloss, non-reflective coating helps reduce energy bills up to 50% and keeps the surface 60-70 degrees cooler than other roof options.
