Eaton Joins NextGen Home Experience
January 17, 2017
Power management company Eaton announced that the company has joined with the NextGen Home Experience to inspire builders to build the homes of the future today. The 2017 NextGen First to the Future online television series will feature and promote the United States Department of Energy’s (DOE) Zero Energy Ready Home program, which educates and encourages builders to build high performance homes that feature energy savings, comfort, health and durability.
“We are pleased to again join the NextGen Home Experience in demonstrating the technologies currently available to build single- or multi-family homes that help increase safety and security, reduce energy costs and save time and money,” said Brad Paine, vice president and general manager of Eaton’s Lighting Division. “The Zero Energy Ready Home program helps homeowners maximize these important investments and we are glad to be a part of the program with our energy-efficient lighting solutions.”
As a participant in the NextGen First to the Future national demonstration home in Palm Coast, Fla., Eaton will supply energy-efficient Halo light-emitting diode (LED) recessed downlights to the home featured in the series. The company has also supplied Halo Surface LED Downlights (SLD) to the NextGen Home Experience tiny home project at the 2017 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders’ Show (IBS) booth.
