Despite low oil prices, the price of energy in the United States continues to rise at an unprecedented rate. Fuel prices already have driven up utility bills nearly 30% in the past five years, the sharpest jump since the 1970s energy crisis.
With no reprieve in sight, green homes and products are becoming an expectation, not an option.

Because of this demand, MODUS prioritizes sustainability and designs to LEED certifications, and creates Zero Energy homes using an integrated design process, which views every element of design and development as part of a holistic plan, not simply as individual line items.
